Opportunity: Solid Oxide Fuel Core Technology Program


The Fossil Energy Fuel Cell Program manages a robust research portfolio, including Core Technology research projects. Projects with the Core Technology moniker focus on laboratory scale research and development (R&D) to support solid-oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system manufacturers. These projects are typically thirty-six months in duration and have budgets on the order of half a million dollars. In this FY2014 funding opportunity announcement (FOA), proposals are sought for applied laboratory scale R&D that will improve the reliability, robustness, and endurance of SOFC cell, stack, and/or system technology. Preference will be given to applicants who partner with an SOFC manufacturer whose technology is nearing commercial viability. Partnership with an SOFC manufacturer will enable Core teams to produce more applied results than previous SECA Core projects. This is a natural consequence of the maturation of SOFC technology, as manufacturers near commercialization their technologies are more developed and there are less areas of common intersection among the different SOFC architectures. Applicants may propose research of any SOFC cell, stack, or system component.
