"Elcogen Oy is developing a new Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) stack for SOFC systems. Elcogen SOFC stack will provide a combination of better efficiency, longer durability, and lower cost, which none of the competing SOFC stack vendors can offer.

In Phase 1 the key objective is to verify the technological feasibility and commercial viability of Elcogen’s SOFC stack. Deliverable from the study will be enhanced business plan. Enhancements will be achieved through customer visits and interviews, supplier visits and interviews, market study and tradeshow participation. Feasibility study will also cover commercial supply agreement negotiations with key component suppliers as well as initiating first customer evaluation tests for the stack.
Business opportunities for Elcogen Oy are based on the following key components: stack design is optimized from the beginning for mass-manufacturing using low cost raw materials; stacks lower operating temperature helps system manufacturers decrease system cost; and Elcogen’s innovative business model in the fuel cell industry is to take advantage of specialized manufacturers.
Elcogen’s proposal focuses on topic “Stimulating the innovation potential of SMEs for a low carbon energy system” within Horizon 2020 Work Programme / Societal Challenge ""Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy“.
The IDEAL business innovation project is core to Elcogen’s successful commercialization and market entry, and fits 100% to Elcogen’s strategy. It will support Elcogen to seize 9% market share of global µCHP stack market by 2020, which equals to forecasted annual turnover of 45 MEUR."
