AGRO-SOFC - Sector coupling with SOFC technology in the agro-industry

Project: Research project

Description

To increase the resilience as well as to expand renewables in the agro-industry and the overall energy system, AGRO-SOFC proposes application of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), which are able to convert chemical energy of fuel directly into electrical energy. SOFCs are highly efficient both under partial and full load, and capable to be used in an island mode. Improved system efficiency will significantly decrease food costs. An SOFC system for generation of electricity and heat coupled with agro sector will be demonstrated and optimized within this project.
