Government & Defense
The Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Energy (DOE) and NASA all have interest in developing solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology as this is a path to enable efficient power systems.
The DoD vision for SOFC technology is to develop lightweight logistic fuel compatible systems for an array of applications: silent watch auxiliary power units, power generation for battery charging, range extenders for electric vehicles, power for unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles. By providing power at a higher efficiency this reduces the burden on the supply lines which ultimately can save soldiers lives.
The DOE sees this technology as a means to achieving cost-effective electricity generation from abundant domestic coal and natural gas resources, with minimal use of water and near-zero atmospheric emissions of carbon dioxide and pollutants. Read the DOE article.
Nexceris’ Fuel Cell Business Unit works closely our customers from these agencies to develop our stack technology to meet their specific goals.
Remember MS&T 2018 in Columbus, Ohio? No?! Well, all of us at fuelcellmaterials want you to remember what we talked about and fueled up your brain a bit.
