Hydrogen fuel cells could help energy security in Europe

Hydrogen Fuel Cells - Europe Energy Security

Conference highlights the energy security potential of fuel cell systems Europe’s energy security may be boosted through the use of hydrogen fuel cells, according to suggested made at a recent conference held in Estonia. The conference was organized by Estonia’s National Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics and VTT, a technical research organization in Finland. Elcogen, a developer of solid oxide fuel cell systems, was also heavily involved in the organization of the event. During the conference, speakers suggested that existing hydrogen fuel cells could help solve Europe’s energy security…

Elcogen fuel cell technology to power clean energy hub

TALLINN – European fuel cell manufacturer Elcogen will supply its technology for a groundbreaking new project demonstrating how reversible solid oxide cells can be used in innovative clean energy storage systems. Elcogen’s market-leading solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology will be used in the upcoming REFLEX project, which will operate an energy hub coupled to solar and mini-hydro renewable sources to provide both electricity and heat to the nearby technology park. At the heart of this energy hub, Elcogen SOFCs will be operating either in electrolysis mode (SOEC) – to store excess electricity to produce hydrogen – or in fuel cell mode (SOFC) when energy…
