PROMETEO testing activities have been presented at the 10th edition of the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Piero Lunghi Conference (EFC23), which took place in Capri from 13th to 15th September 2023.
Francesca Panaccione, researcher at the Center for Sustainable Energy at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, presented the work entitled “Testing and characterization of a 5 kW SOE stack: full load, partial load and hot-standby mode analysis” within the session High temperature electrolysis.
The purpose of the study was to characterize a 5 kW SOE stack, to analyse its performance when operated in different working conditions, mainly full load, partial load and hot standby mode. The stack characterization was required to implement similar SOE stacks in relevant environment, as planned in the PROMETO project, where 25 kW pilot systems will be designed and tested. The systems will be powered by PV electricity and heat from a concentrated solar power plant and will produce hydrogen to be injected into the natural gas grid or for ammonia generation.
EFC23 is a well-known conference in the fields of hydrogen energy and fuel cell technologies is held biannually in Italy, and aims to discuss the scientific progress and the most modern applications of hydrogen and fuel cell-based technologies, to prove that the need for change is a resource to cultivate. Such a view is reflected in the cross-cutting topics and wide range of applications considered one of the pillars of future European energy and transport systems, making a valued contribution to the transformation to a low carbon economy by 2050.
