Description:

High temperature solid oxide technologies have the
potential to provide
low-cost and high-efficiency distributed production of electricity and
hydrogen. Based on the early stage of development for this technology,
particularly for hydrogen production, this Announcement seeks innovative
research leading to candidate materials and small scale stack testing for
solid
oxide fuel cells, reversible solid oxide fuel cell/electrolyzers, and other

innovative solid oxide fuel cell electricity/hydrogen production concepts.
To
avoid duplication with the Office of Fossil Energy solid oxide fuel cell
development, this technology is targeted for renewable power parks and
automobile refueling station scale for distributed production of
electricity
and hydrogen. Technology specifically geared toward large-scale central
production from non-renewable resources such as coal, natural gas, and
petroleum coke will not be funded under this Announcement. Concepts
relying on
distributed natural gas will be considered. Potential for system
integration
with renewable resources such as biomass, solar, wind, and geothermal is
encouraged as well as lower temperature systems and innovative materials
concepts such as proton conducting ceramics. Planar designs such as anode
supported cells and metal supported cells are preferred. System materials

that can be specifically optimized for the production of hydrogen are
preferred. Information on existing related DOE sponsored programs and
projects
can be found at the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy web
site
(http://www.eere.energy.gov) and the Office of Fossil Energy web site
(http://www.fe.doe.gov).

The required objective of the project is fuel cell/electrolysis materials
that
must be tested in a solid oxide stack (below 1 kilowatt) capable of
producing
electricity and preferably hydrogen. The cell stack must achieve 1000 hour

lifetime with less than 5% performance degradation for electricity and/or
hydrogen production. A second objective is an analysis based on
performance
data from the test stack developed for hydrogen production to verify a
potential low-pressure hydrogen cost below $2.00 per kilogram for a
distributed
hydrogen production system.
