On the 21st and 22nd of January 2021 the kick-off meeting of the SO-FREE “Solid oxide fuel cell combined heat and power: Future-ready Energy” project took place. SO-FREE is funded by the European Commission under the Programme Horizon 2020 and it is coordinated by ENEA (Agenzia Nazionale Per Le Nuove Tecnologie, L’energia E Lo Sviluppo Economico Sostenibile).
SO-FREE main aim is to develop a fully future-ready solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC)-based system for combined heat and power (CHP) generation, this means a versatile system concept for efficient, near-zero-emission, fuel-flexible and truly modular power and heat supply to end users in the residential, commercial, municipal and agricultural sectors.
The partnership includes the most relevant experts in the field, organisations and companies from Finland, Netherlands, Germany and Poland, namely: Avl List Gmbh, Elcogen Oy, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft Zur Foerderung Der Angewandten Forschung E.V., I.C.I Caldaie Spa, Instytut Energetyki, Kiwa Nederland Bv, Pge Polska Grupa Energetyczna Sa, Università degli Studi Guglielmo Marconi.
The meeting took place online and it was an opportunity to present the main activities to be carried out within the 4 years’ duration of the project and to revise the first steps to take.
To keep up to date with the project, we invite you to periodically consult the website and the dedicated social media pages
