Energy Factor

  1. 1. Low-cost SOFC power plant for distributed generationSergey ShubenkovDirector of “Energy Factor”
  2. 2. 1. Industry trendsDecentralized generation (DG) is growing much fasterthan the centralized generation industryRenewable and low-carbon generation technologies are main driversof DG growth though they still have a number of disadvantages
  3. 3. 2. SolutionSmall (1 ÷ 15 kW) heat and power plant based on low-cost SOFC technology as common as personal car1. SOFC power plants are efficient (up to 60%),ecological, noiseless, cheap in maintenanceand long-living2. Key customers: householders, buildingdevelopers, utilities services enterprises,agricultural enterprises and telecom companies3. The envisioned power plant’s pay-off period is2-5 years depending on the type of usage andconfiguration
  4. 4. 3. MarketBasic market for SOFC-plants is global and fast-growing1. The market value for DG technologies based on fuel willreach $74.3 billion by 2015, with a CAGR of 18.2%.2. Global demand for fuel cell power plants is projected toreach $2.6 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 54.6%.3. Cost advantage is the key competitive factor on thestationary fuel cell market
