SiEnergy Awarded $300,000 Grant for Thin Film Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Technology
SiEnergy Systems, which is commercializing low temperature thin film solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology from Harvard University, was awarded a $300,000 grant from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) under its AmplifyMass program.
AmplifyMass offers its awards to Massachusetts-based clean technology companies and university research projects that have been given funding by the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) program, which SiEnergy Systems won in 2014 for its efforts to develop a hybrid electrochemical system that performs as both a fuel cell and battery.
SiEnergy Systems is developing a thin film SOFC for the portable and small power generation markets. The technology is designed to reduce fuel cell cost, and allow fast start-up and load-following capability by responding rapidly to changes in power demand. SiEnergy’s technology uses nanometer scale electrolytes to create SOFCs that operate at a commercially desirable temperature and is scalable to meet various power requirements.
