The European SOFC & SOE Forum is a high-level international fuel cell & electrolyser event that every year offers a presentation of the state-of-the-art technology.
In 2022, Switzerland hosted the 15th edition of EFCF and focused on “science, engineering, materials, systems, applications and markets for all types of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC), Solid Oxide Electrolysers (SOE) and Solid Oxide Electrochemical Reactors” also addressing the established issue of CO2 emission reduction and reuse.

SWITCH project participated in the conference on several occasion. This year, three presentations have been given by three partners: Solydera, EFPL and the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR).
Solydera focused on the large stack module and system development for SOFC, SOE and reversible operation in industrial processes.
DLR presented the transient simulation and experimental validation of a solid oxide cell module in electrolysis and polygeneration mode.
EPFL reported the results of local investigation of a segmented reversible-SOC.
Furthermore, SWITCH participated with a workshop in the final event of CH2P project, as already written in a this news.
2022 was not the first year that saw the participation of SWITCH project in EFCF. Represented by SolidPower, the project took part also in the virtual event European Fuel Cell Forum 2020, where the development and testing of a 25 kWe Large Stack Module for SOFC and SOE applications was presented.
