    • 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.

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.
