US-based FuelCell Energy has today (December 6) announced it is accepting orders for its solid oxide electrolyser and fuel cell platforms, which it says offers superior efficiency.
With its electrolyser stacks currently under evaluation at the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Idaho National Laboratory (NIL), the company has said its electrolyser technology is expected to lower the cost of hydrogen production by 20-30%, due to efficiency over existing electrolysis technologies.
According to FuelCell Energy, the platform operates at approximately 90% electrical efficiency (HHV) and is capable of 100% HHV when paired with available excess heat from industry or nuclear facilities. The 1MW unit is expected to produce up to 600kg of hydrogen per day.
