Abstract

Solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) development work at Forschungszentrum Juelich (FZJ) is extensive, ranging from fundamental materials' design through to near-commercial prototype CHP systems. Considerable advances have been demonstrated in the past years concerning the improvement of device performance by identifying performance degradation mechanisms and reducing or eliminating those problems, and in designing, developing and manufacturing core SOFC components. At the time of this writing, the first, fully integrated SOFC combined heat and power generation prototype system is awaiting completion. FZJ is involved in significant national and international programs and coordinates major international projects.
