Abstract

Fuel cells offer an environmentally sound, distributed energy source for individual buildings. Many governments believe that security and sustainability of energy supply can be improved with this technology. Therefore large public support programmes are under way to facilitate the commercialization of residential fuel cell systems. VTT is actively participating in this development work in a number of projects. Modelling and simulation tools have been developed to provide the means for studying the interaction between fuel cell system and a building. VTT initiated in 2004 development of a PEM fuel cell based power stack and developed its control system and operating strategies. VTT supports local industry in developing technologies for SOFC systems, e.g. fuel processing for natural gas and diesel. The most important accomplishment has been the development of a 5 kW SOFC CHP laboratory demonstration plant fuelled by natural gas. The plant was grid connected and successfully operated for 6500 hours.
