We stack it.
The art of the fuel cell is at home at SolydEra.
For more than 20 years, the international expert team has been realising and mass-producing cutting-edge innovative energy solutions based on the proprietary Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) and stack technology.
More than 3,000 SolydEra power and heat systems running internationally to date have already produced more than 90GWh of electricity in more than 70 million hours of operations.
This enormous success is of high value in terms of practical experience and information that only SolydEra possesses – and puts to optimal use in the innovation and market development and further growth.
SolydEra presently holds 10 patents for technologies devised in its three global research & innovation facilities.
The solutions are developed based on currently more than 250 customer and partner cooperations.
Enormous saving potential for the climate.
The analyses clearly show where the future lies:
About a quarter of global electricity is produced from natural gas. The production with traditional gas-fired power plants has an efficiency of only 38 percent (42% conversion, 10% grid loss) under significant emissions.
In contrast, electricity production with the SOFC technology has an efficiency of at least 60%. There is no grid loss since the production is local and decentralised. The gas is not burnt, so there are much less emissions. In addition, big amounts of heat are made available.
Ultimately, each year the tremendous volume of some 500 billion cubic metres of natural gas can be saved. The demand drastically reduces from 1,600 to 1,100 billion cubic metres.
SolydEra is engaged in the following energy segments:
The systems are being employed in the following business areas:
- Commercial and private applications
- Large commercial and industrial applications
- SOE electrolysis for hydrogen
What makes SolydEra different
SolydEra possesses the knowledge and production capabilities for what has been proven as clearly the most efficient and flexible fuel cell technology in the industry. The solutions guarantee reliable energy supply from different sources. This is also relevant for renewable methods which are often discontinuous.
SolydEra leads hydrogen technology
Based on these unique experiences and capabilities, SolydEra has recently entered Solid Oxide Electrolysis (SOE) as key hydrogen technology. Thanks to it, it is possible to convert energy to flexibly make it available and store it.
Ultimately, this is an indispensable fundament for the necessary energy transition and decarbonisation in the fight against the climate change, as well as for energy security with independence from volatilities in energy supply and foreign energy supply.
The product range, under the product label BLUEGEN, is being continuously expanded and adapted, in co-operation with international partners. Main product lines currently comprise:
- BLUEGEN BG-08
- BLUEGEN BG-15
- BLUEGEN Pro 78
- BLUEGEN Pro 90
- SolydEra S15
- SolydEra E100
SolydEra is developing stacks and systems for an almost infinite and diverse spectrum of needed advanced applications.
The company is demonstrating this with several innovations that are just before market introduction. SolydEra’s immediate response to booming international demand is cascaded and/or containerised fuel cell modules and systems for hydrogen production. In the SOFC area, a large stack with an output of 8kW will be available in 2023. A multi-stack power generator for 100kW systems also is in early development.
