Planar solid oxide fuel cells are a promising approach for cost-effective electrochemical energy conversion. They are especially suitable for stationary production of electrical power in small decentralized units. This means the electrical power is generated where it is needed. In this application, the planar SOFC has the following main advantages:

a) high efficiency (> 60% electrical), b) low emissions, c) fossil fuels and hydrogen applicable.
