Small Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Reaches Record Efficiency

Until now, most developers of solid oxide fuel cells have focused on larger systems that produce 1 MW of power or more and can replace traditional power plants.

Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory instead focused on a small-scale solution powered by methane. A number of recent fuel cell technologies were used to achieve 57% efficiency, a sizable jump from previous efforts.
