Foresight and technology: How we’re advancing the energy transition
With the SOFC, we’re developing a system to market maturity that generates fuel-flexible electricity and heat and is already capable of running on hydrogen.
Bosch supports the European Union’s Green Deal and sees itself as bearing a special responsibility regarding sustainability. At the same time global energy demands are continuing to grow, along with our determination to play a meaningful role in the solution for a CO2-neutral energy supply. How? With the energy-efficient and decentralized solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system from Bosch. These systems are incredibly versatile as they can use both renewable fuels (hydrogen from wind or sun) and conventional fuels (biomethane or natural gas) to generate electricity and heat. In a period when the global energy markets are changing faster than ever before, this makes our fuel-flexible energy converter a perfect solution.
Decentralized and smart: The power grids of the future
The market for decentralized energy production is expected to reach an estimated volume of €20 billion by 2030. Sustainability has been primarily associated with climate protection for some time – but now the role of supply security is also growing.
Bosch believes that the highly efficient fuel cell, with its very low emissions, has an important role to play in energy systems’ security of supply and flexibility.
Targeted advances in technologies for green energy
The goal to sustainably convert our energy systems is rooted in the European Green Deal and the Paris Climate Agreement, and it’s being implemented in national and regional hydrogen strategies on the federal and state levels, among other initiatives. With our SOFC and fuel cell-related technologies and our participation in publicly funded projects, we’re making a substantial contribution to the energy transformation.
