Solid Oxide Electrolyser Cell Technology
Leveraging our SOFC experience to enhance SOEC
To support the growing hydrogen generation market, Nexceris provides expertise and solutions for the development of Solid Oxide Electrolyzer Cells (SOEC). In order to utilize as much of the electricity produced by nuclear, wind, solar, and other sources as possible, including storing that energy as hydrogen, SOEC is an important part of the Energy Plus Storage future.
Understanding the demand for these types of renewable sources, Nexceris is now developing technologies around SOEC. The research avenues in SOEC are similar to the ones for fuel cell, and the knowledge we have gained through SOFC research can be leveraged to push SOECs forward. As part of the effort Nexceris was recently awarded a project to research and produce advanced coatings to enhance the durability of SOEC stacks.
Nexceris also works with public and private sector partners to improve their SOEC technologies and allow for successful commercialization. Nexceris uses our proven LEVER process to fully understand our partners short and long term goals to allow for successfully execution of these projects in a cost effective and timely manner.
LEVER COLLABORATION PROCESS
Nexceris Participated in a DOE Hydrogen Shot Summit Panel Focused on Clean Hydrogen Production Through Electrolysis
The Hydrogen Shot is part of a larger DOE Energy Earthshots Initiative aimed to accelerate breakthroughs of more abundant, affordable, and reliable clean energy solutions in this decade. Nexceris’ own Scott Swartz, Chief Technology Officer, was a panelist of a breakout session on High Temperature (Solid Oxide) Electrolysis.
Nexceris recently participated in the virtual ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit and was able to connect with many energy industry experts by describing their Phase II project aimed at a solid oxide fuel cell based hybrid power system.
