The preparation of first Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) demonstration in an office building environment located in Finland is currently taking place. In this context, standardization situation has been scanned worldwide. In addition, all requirements concerning connection of SOFC system to the public networks have been explored and solutions consulted with authorities and owners of the local heating and electricity networks. There is a limited number of district heating connection schemes in Finland pre-elaborated for application in certain types of buildings. None of the existing solutions takes readily into account the possibility of heat generation on site. A new configuration has been elaborated for combination of the SOFC fuel cell system with the otherwise typical district heating connection scheme applicable for an office building. The paper provides technological background, summarizes the regulatory requirements and presents new solution for integrating SOFC fuel cell with the office building connected to district heating system
