The Solid Oxide Fuel Cells Program (formerly, State Energy Conversion Alliance) focuses on research and development to enable generation of efficient, cost-effective electricity from coal and natural gas with near-zero atmospheric emissions of CO2 and air pollutants as well as minimal waster use in central power generation applications that can be integrated with carbon capture and storage.

FY 2016 activities will focus on advanced materials development. The Fossil Energy Fuel Cells Program is in the process of developing  highly efficient, ultra-low emission, fuel flexible solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology that can exploit domestic fossil fuel resources, maintain sound environmental stewardship, and contribute to a secure, clean energy future.
