World Record: Jülich Fuel Cell Passes 40,000 Hour Mark
New record means fuel cells now ready for stationary applications
Jülich, 19 March 2012 – A planar solid oxide fuel cell from Jülich has clocked up more than 40,000 operating hours. It is thus the first in the world to achieve the operating time required for the cost-effective deployment of fuel cells in stationary applications, corresponding to five years. Due to the good efficiency and high operating temperature, development of this type of fuel cell is targeting stationary applications in particular, such as decentralized systems for private households.
