Bosch is mainly active in two different fields of fuel cell applications. MOBILE applications, which focuses on PEM technology and STATIONARY applications that focuses on SOFC technology. - - - To bundle its activities in the field of stationary fuel cell systems based on SOFC (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell), Bosch has formed a cross-divisional project organization to speed up engineering and sales and services. Several Bosch plants are involved in sample production from the cell and stack and to the assembly and certification of entire SOFC systems. Various SOFC devices are already running under real-life conditions at Bosch locations. The first pioneering application will produce energy efficiently at an external partner in the second half of 2020. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Related Key note speech from Wayne-Daniel Kern: "Stationary Fuel Cell - Connected devices as green distributed virtual power plants" - September 29, 15:10 – 15:30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- With regard to mobile applications please listen to the speech of Jürgen Gerhardt "Mobile and Stationary Fuel Cell Solutions at Bosch ", September 29, 11:30 – 12:00

Product Highlights:

The future of power generation starts today - Bosch is providing stationary fuel cell systems based on SOFC (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell) technology. These devices can be operated with natural gas OR hydrogen OR mixtures thereof and achieve an electrical efficiency of > 60%; with heat recovery the overall efficiency increases to > 85%. The high efficiency reduces CO2 emissions by up to 40% even when operating with natural gas compared to the German power mix; when operating with biomethane or hydrogen, no direct CO2 emissions are produced.
