  • Report Description
  • Summary

A Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) is an energy conversion device that produces electricity by electrochemically combining a fuel and an oxidant across an ionic conducting oxide electrolyte. The electrical work in these reactions is directly converted due to the large fraction of the enthalpy associated with the electrochemical oxidation of the fuel into water and carbon dioxide. Furthermore, these fuel cells provide many advantages over traditional energy conversion systems including high efficiency, reliability, modularity, fuel adaptability. Additionally, SOFCs also eliminates noise usually associated with conventional power generation systems. Currently, the Department of energy and electrical power companies are actively working on solid oxide fuel cells, focusing on the research & development and commercialization of the technology.

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Market Outlook

The solid oxide fuel cell market has gained significant growth due to remarkable growing demand for energy efficient power generation, government subsidies and fuel cell programs in various countries and ability to run on multiple fuels. Moreover, stringent emission norms leading to demand for clean energy sources is also the major factors contributing to the growth of the solid oxide fuel cell market. However, high capital costs required for solid oxide fuel cells is one of the factor hampering the growth of solid oxide fuel cell market.
