Low-temperature fuel cell technology aims to go commercial

By Jim Destefani / August 27, 2013

UMD and Redox Power Systems LLC recently announced that they will work jointly to commercialize SOFCs using functionally graded ceria/bismuth oxide bilayered electrolyte technology.

Can the US afford to pull the plug on SOFC and SECA funding?

By / November 8, 2011

Credit: Wachsman et al.; Energy & Environmental Science. No. Will it anyway? Unfortunately, it looks that way, based on the DOE’s 2012 budget request (pdf), which hacks off 41 percent of total SOFC funding from the current year budget, and would leave support at 65 percent of what it had in 2010. Moreover, it would cut off funding…
