HEATSTACK will be represented at the 15th International Symposium on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC-XV), in Florida, next week.

Project partners University of Birmingham, represented by Prof. Robert Steinberger-Wilckens and Kun Zhang from the The Centre for Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Research, have submitted a paper to ECS Transactions and will present at the event on the work undertaken on materials research during HEATSTACK. Project partners Sunfire GmBH, who develop and produce high-temperature fuel cell (SOFC) and electrolyser (SOEC) systems, will also be attending SOFC-XV. To find out more about the roles of the University of Birmingham and Sunfire in HEATSTACK, please see the Partners section of this website:

SOFC-XV is international symposium that brings together scientists, engineers, and researchers from academia, industry, and government laboratories to share results and discuss issues related to solid oxide fuel cells and electrolysers. It provides an opportunity to learn and exchange information on the latest scientific and technical developments relating to SOFCs and SOECs. To find out more you can visit the Electrochemical Society’s website:

The HEATSTACK paper will be published online a month after the event.

UPDATE, November 2017 – the presentation that was given by our project partners University of Birmingham is now available in the Public Materials section of this website.
