Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are advanced and sustainable energy technologies to address fuel conversion, energy efficiency, polluting emissions and related effects on global warming and climate changes. SOFCs deliver electrical energy at high efficiency by consuming different type of fuels including hydrogen, hydrocarbons, alcohols etc. that are supplied on-demand to the cell. SOFC technology fed with sustainable fuels such as “green” hydrogen and bio-fuels can thus contribute to achieve the targets concerning with reduction of greenhouse gases emissions, increase of renewable power sources and energy efficiency. These technologies comply with the requirement of a low carbon economy by 2050. Solid oxide fuel cells are solid-state electrochemical devices based on ceramic materials that provide superior solution for several applications including distributed generation of electrical energy in combined heat and power systems as well as for transportation. In particular, they offer an efficient solution for energy applications in residential and integrated industrial systems, and as auxiliary power units in transportation. New frontiers in this field deal with protonic systems, direct oxidation of organic fuels, advanced fuel processing of high molecular weight hydrocarbons, additive manufacturing-3D printing etc.
The International Symposium on “Solid Oxide Fuel Cells: Materials and Technology Challenges”, aims to collect all innovative contributes in the area of Solid Oxide Cells based devices boosting a renewed propensity towards more realistic applications and an increased social acceptance of these technologies. This symposium will focus on major advances in materials science, modeling, processing, stack manufacturing and system development for solid oxide ceramic fuel cells.
Original papers are solicited on different types of solid oxide fuel cells. Of particular interest are recent developments of advanced materials, novel stack designs, emerging cell technologies, solid oxide fuel cell applications, optimization and breakthroughs in performance. Reviews of the state-of-the-art solid oxide fuel cell performance for specific applications, including consumer devices, electric vehicles, and distributed energy systems, may also be submitted.
