    Abstract

    The H2020 BALANCE project focuses on the development of reversible Solid Oxide Cells (rSOC) that are both capable of fuel cell and electrolysis operation. For that reason, rSOC technology is expected to play an important role in the integration of intermittent renewable electricity by storing the excess production and by converting the synthetic fuel back into power when it is needed. Research activities of the BALANCE project target the improvement of cell performance, finding suitable low-cost steel alloy for interconnect applications, stack design and prototyping and demonstration at system level. In addition, techno-economic analysis is being carried out to evaluate the benefits of rSOC technology in combination with synthesis step for the production of non-fossil fuels or chemicals. Lastly, BALANCE is surveying and analyzing the research effort in Europe and will publish a roadmap supporting the development and deployment of the rSOC technology. The paper here describes the different project activities and its expected outcomes.
