SOFCool - Combined Cooling, Heat and Power

Project: Research project

Project Details


A SOFC CCHP system (Combined Cooling, Heat and Power) using renewable energy sources (biogas, sewage gas, land fill gas, synthetic diesel, .) will be developed to achieve high efficiencies. While electrical power will be produced at very high efficiencies using a SOFC (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell), the energy of the hot exhaust gas is used to operate an absorption chiller system which provides a low temperature coolant and its waste heat can be used for heating. The combined system allows the utilization of various renewable energy resources and a high annual efficiency. Within the planned project a proof of concept will be shown and tested in an experimental plant in a power range of 8 kWel.
