Symposium 18

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technologies

Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and Solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs) have gained increasing interest in recent years due to their capability of achieving high-efficiency power generation and hydrogen production. Significant progress has been made in recent decades, bringing SOFCs into their early stage of commercialization. However, SOFCs are still facing challenges in durability and cost, both of which are associated with materials operating at high temperatures, design of cell and stack, and manufacturing processes. The symposium will provide a forum to exchange research ideas on these areas together with electrochemical processes of SOFCs and related conduction mechanisms.
To achieve a cleaner and low carbon future, hydrogen has also garnered significant interest as a chemical means of storage for electricity available from either baseload or renewable power plants. The symposium will also give a wide overview of the state-of-the-art materials needed and technologies in the fields of hydrogen production, storage, transportation, and safety.
