Versa Power Systems (VPS) is a developer of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) technology focused on SOFC stack development for commercial applications.  In recent years VPS has been developing reversible SOFC (RSOFC) materials systems with a view to future commercial development of RSOFC stacks.  VPS has demonstrated significant technical improvements in RSOFC materials technology in a relatively short timeframe, and has begun to test these at the stack level.  This paper will provide an update of RSOFC activities including cell and stack testing in both steady-state electrolysis operation and operating with RSOFC cycles (fuel cell and electrolysis cycling).
