OxiGEN Next-generation Solid Oxide Fuel Cell stack and hot box solution for small stationary applications

The solution’s design will be modular and will address the specifications and standards suggested by the Advisory Panel, in order to provide a technical platform serving several market segments while fostering open competition between industry players. This new platform is of European ownership and leverages a European supply chain, thus supporting the emergence of a European fuel cell industry fully independent from Asian fuel cell technology.

The projects’ technical objectives address all the call challenges:

  • Define, with input from the Advisory Panel, the most suitable hotbox functional specifications for residential and commercial segments
  • Develop a higher power stack to reach the call’s technical targets
  • Develop a modular hot box concept and build a 1kWe prototype (in practice, 500We to 1500We depending on preferred micro-CHP power specification)
  • Assess the performance of the prototype in system-like conditions
  • Study the cost-of-ownership of the solution
  • Propose material-based solutions for future long-term improvements
  • Ensure the manufacturability and compatibility of the new hotbox with the EU supply chain
  • Disseminate results and build the exploitation plan
