 Solid Oxide Fuel Cells Market

 Solid Oxide Fuel Cells: Technologies and Global Markets

  • Published Date : 31 Dec 2016
  • BCC Research
  • Category : Energy and Power
  • Pages : 252

Report Scope:

This report discusses the North American, European, Far Eastern and Rest-of-World market values. Target markets are based on optimistic, pessimistic and consensus alternatives, which are compared to the conventional power generation target and peak shifting opportunities. The current market is emerging with pre-commercial demos and subsidized pilot projects as well as fast-growing niche markets that are quickly becoming established specialty markets.

Over the next five years these pilots will be expanding into commercial implementations. The 2020 market is also characterized in terms of optimistic, pessimistic and consensus scenarios.

SOFC applications are described and analyzed. The following applications are considered:
- Combined heat and power (CHP).
- Remote power and auxiliary power units (APUs).
- Military.
- Portable product power.
- Exotic.

SOFC companies are listed and their detailed profiles are discussed in the Company Profiles chapter.

Report Includes:

- An overview of the global markets for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), a technology offering the promise of greatly reduced environmental impact and excellent performance, price, fuel flexibility, and efficiency advantages.
- Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2008 and 2012, 2015, and projections of CAGRs through 2020.
- Discussion of the current state, setbacks, innovations, and the future needs of the market.
- Examination of the market by application and by product sizes; utility scale, medium scale and small scale.
- Applications covered include: 
     - Combined heat and power (CHP)
     - Remote power and auxiliary power units (APUs)
     - Military
     - Portable product power
     - Exotic
- Analyses of the technology and recent commercial developments in the SOFC industry.
- Profiles of major players in the industry.
