Solid oxide fuel cell combined heat and power: Future-ready Energy

Project description

A fuel-flexible combined heat and power system

To reduce energy consumption and achieve near-zero emissions, there is growing need for a versatile system. This is the aim of the EU-funded SO-FREE project. It will develop a future-ready solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC)-based system for combined heat and power (CHP) production that can run on any mixture of natural gas, biogas and hydrogen. It will test the creation of a standardised stack system interface, allowing full interchangeability of SOFC stack types within a given SOFC-CHP system. The project will double the required demonstration period, running two systems. The first will be used to assess compliance with all applicable certification requirements of a technology readiness level 6 prototype. The second will provide CHP with natural gas with injections of hydrogen in an operational environment.
