Partnership Awarded $8 million to Develop Fuel Cells

Corning Incorporated and ENrG received a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Advanced Technology Program (ATP) award for US $8 million to develop solid oxide fuel cell technology. The award is part of a three-year, $16 million cooperative agreement funded by NIST, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), Corning Incorporated and ENrG. The companies will use the funds develop scalable, robust, planar solid oxide fuel cell technology. Corning’s solid oxide fuel cell technology is based on innovations in thin solid electrolyte technology and is ideally suited to power generation in the 200 plus kW range for stationary primary power and cogeneration applications.
