Fuel cells are expected to become a key technology of the future decentralised energy supply with combined heat and power (CHP) units. Therefore the EBZ Demonstration Systems provide a flexible platform for a large variety of research and application targets.
EBZ Demonstration Systems are applied to residential micro CHP, large-scale CHP for industry or for stationary and mobile, like auxiliary power units (APU). EBZ Demonstration Systems are applicable to test stacks in a real-world system environment, operated with different fuels and fuel processing technologies. Electrical efficiencies of more than 50 % at a power of only 1 kW electrical power obtained with natural gas from the grid show the outstanding potentials of the solid
oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology. Especially in environments, year-round heat demand exists, SOFC systems are ideally suited to satisfy customers demands with long service intervals, low noise levels and minimal emissions.
EBZ has developed and operated several generations of fuel cell systems with different gas processing types and stack technologies. They are either for proofing the SOFC stack long-term stability or to investigate the stack and system performance with different fuel and operation characteristics.
For SOFC stack manufacturers
For fuel cell system research
EBZ offers it competences in stack integration and system development to bring the SOFC technology to the market. We have more than one decade of experiences in the SOFC technology and system development. EBZ cooperates with leading research institutes and companies in the SOFC sector. In addition EBZ has gained comprehensive expertise as member in several EU research projects. Contact us and profit from our expertise!
