SOEC/SOFC reversible system
CEA Tech, RhÃ´ne-alpes, France
A reversible system, able to operate either in electrolysis mode (to produce hydrogen) or in fuel cell mode (to produce electricity), suitable to store intermittent renewable energies, the switch between electrolysis and fuel cell mode depending on the availability/requirements and price of electricity.
Primary Application Area: Energy & Efficiency
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: This technology can be operated reversibly, the same device being used either as an electrolyser or as a fuel cell, targeting to decrease the investment cost and to maximise its operation time while improving the efficiency thanks to high temperature, which cannot be performed with alkaline or PEM water electrolysis.
