A test with a ceramic solid oxide cell for steam electrolysis was recently completed at EIFER after a duration of 23,000 hours – which is more than two and a half years. At present, this is by far the longest test for such a cell worldwide. The cell represents the heart of a steam electrolyser producing hydrogen with electrical energy.
The final RES (Räumliche Energiesimulation - Spatial Energy Simulation) Tegel simulation prototype was presented on the 25th September in Berlin. It successfully ends the first phase of a collaboration between Tegel Projekt GmbH, EIFER, EDF, the urban planning Institute of the TU Berlin and the energy consulting company Drees & Sommer.
