Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


By analogy with the development of nuclear power and photovoltaics, the position of MCFC technology is evaluated in the context of today's energy supply. A brief review is presented of the technical status of MCFC materials and challenges left open. At system level, a number of more or less niche applications prove to be promising for approaching early markets and an update is given of some important figures on construction and deployment of MCFC systems worldwide.
