Mark De Guire Receives $300,000 from DOE to Study Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

Case Western Reserve University Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and Great Lakes Energy Institute Sponsored Faculty Mark De Guire has received $300,000 from the Department of Energy Office of Fossil Energy to study solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). This two year project seeks to understand how selected operational parameters affect the performance of SOFCs, with a special focus on cathode performance. 

This is one of 16 projects selected by the Department of Energy to support the development of reliable and robust SOFC technology for fuel cell systems. The selected projects address technical issues which impact the cost and reliability of SOFC technology.
