The SWITCH concept is based on flexible operations in between the electrolysis (SOE) and fuel cell (SOFC) modes.
The SWITCH system aims at extending the operations of the electrolysis mode by allowing the Solid Oxide Cell to operate in Fuel Cell Mode – SOFC Mode – at partial fuel conversion to allow the simultaneous production of hydrogen and electricity.
Owing to the reversible SOC, the SWITCH system will operate in electrolysis mode when renewable electricity is available and in fuel cell mode the rest of the time.
This project has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No 875148. The JU receive support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, Hydrogen Europe and Hydrogen Europe Research.
