As part of the TOGETHER project, a 2 kW solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) plant has been operated at CEDER-CIEMAT

Soria, 11 january 2022.

During the week of tests, although it was snowing and the outside temperature remained between 6ºC and -3ºC, different tests were carried out, such as the start-up of the station, the start-up and obtaining a characteristic curve of the fuel cell and its connection to the demonstrator, operating in an integrated manner, and providing the energy necessary to cover a given demand and to recharge the battery from the stored hydrogen, previously obtained by water electrolysis.

The TOGETHER project uses solar photovoltaic energy as the primary energy source. The electrical energy generated is supplied to the application currently being used, or is stored in a lithium battery of suitable capacity, or is used in the hydrogen cycle. In this cycle, electrical energy is converted by electrolysis into chemical energy, hydrogen, which is stored under pressure by using the appropriate compressor, allowing it to be reused if necessary, and the cycle can be closed and the hydrogen converted back into electrical energy again by means of fuel cells. The third type of generation used in the project is thermal, and this allows the recovery of part of the heat generated in the previous processes, to be used in thermal cycles, such as a domestic hot water circuit or heating of some premises. This project involves the participation of Geoter, Desigenia, H2B2, CNH2 and Ciemat.
