FuelCell Energy has been selected by the US Department of Energy to receive $3m for its reversible solid oxide fuel cell project, which focuses on the development of its solid oxide fuel cell systems.
The Connecticut-based company’s reversible solid oxide fuel cell system is a hybrid operation system which performs water electrolysis for the production of hydrogen, the system then stores the hydrogen, before producing power from the hydrogen.
Jason Few, CEO of FuelCell Energy, said, “This project significantly aids the development of our solid oxide platform as we work to develop our commercial electrolysis and long-duration storage platform.”
“There is a growing realisation of the need for clean, cost-effective, long-duration energy storage, which is becoming increasingly urgent as more intermittent sources are being added to the electric grid.”
