Corning Inc. and ENrG Inc. recently announced that they have received a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Advanced Technology Program (ATP) award to develop solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology. The $8 million 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 and ENrG. The funds will be used by Corning and ENrG to develop scalable, robust, planar SOFC technology. Corning's SOFC technology is based on innovations in thin solid electrolyte technology and is ideally suited to power generation in the 200+ kilowatt range used in stationary primary power and cogeneration applications.
