Solid oxide fuel cells

  1. 1. Solid Oxide Fuel CellsPublished:september 2011No.Of Pages:288Price:US $ 4850Report Summary* The global solid oxide fuel cell market in 2011 will be worth more than$380 million, up from $360 million in 2010. This will result in a $530 millionglobal market in 2016, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9%between 2011 and 2016 under a consensus scenario.* The market for CPUs is valued at $140 million in 2011 and is forecast torise to almost $215 million by 2016, reflecting a CAGR of 9%.* The total market for generators, remote and APUs is likely to increase from$135 million in 2011 to approximately $159 million in 2016, a CAGR of3.3%.INTRODUCTIONSTUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVESFuel cells are viewed as potential candidates for auxiliary power, mobilepower, stationary distributed or central power, and portable product power.Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are among the most efficient and cost-effective. Although relatively high operating temperature limits the range ofapplications possible, stationary, mobile, and even portable productconfigurations are possible.Advances in the technology have been made, but sometimes these advancesreveal even more challenges to be met. Slowly, there is the realization thattotal dependency on hydrocarbon fuels is not a viable economic option.SOFCs have a part in securing energy security for the country, improving theenvironment, greatly reducing urban pollution, and creating jobs inmanufacturing as the technology advances. They can also provide a cost-effective and performance-driven rival for other fuel cells, batteries, internalcombustion engines, and coal- or oil-fired heat engines.This study analyzes components of the SOFC, a technology offering thepromise of greatly reduced environmental impact and excellent performance,
