Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is developing solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) for military applications, such as powering individual soldier's equipment, as well as for commercial power plants, distributed generation for residential and commercial use and auxiliary power units for public and personal transportation. Also, SOFCs may be used for large-scale stationary power generation.

Background: A solid oxide fuel cell is an electrochemical energy conversion device that uses conventional fuels to produce electricity. Fuel cells consist of two electrodes--an anode and a cathode--sandwiched around an electrolyte. Hydrogen from the fuel passes over the anode. Oxygen from the air passes over the cathode, gaining electrons at the interface with the electrolyte. These oxygen ions pass through the electrolyte and react with the hydrogen from the anode to form electricity, water and heat.
