Workshop on Synergistic Use of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) in Data Centers and Other Embedded Energy Applications

Wednesday, 26 July 2017: 14:00-16:50
Atlantic Ballroom 1/2 (The Diplomat Beach Resort)
All SOFC-XV participants are welcome to attend a special workshop on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 26th on SOFCs and their role in distributed power.  The event will include talks by Microsoft, Cummins, University of California - Irvine and Ceres Power on inherent synergies of SOFCs when embedded in data centers or other modular power applications.  The talks will be followed by a panel discussion, giving audience members a chance to ask questions and share their ideas. This workshop seeks to provide insight from the end-user perspective; i.e. what potential buyers/users of SOFCs envision as the opportunities and risks of the technology when embedded as an inherent part of the application, and what this approach means for the direction of the future SOFC development.
