Over the past few years the Netherlands Energy Research Foundation (ECN)in Petten, Netherlands, has carried out a focussed SOFC R&D programme to develop manufacturing protocols for second generation, anode supported, thin electrolyte SOFC (solid oxide fuel cells) ceramic cell components using tape-casting and screen-printing fabrication techniques. This paper summarises the manufacturing procedure and the performance of state-of-the art components. The short-term component optimisation R&D program that focuses on cost reduction, performance improvement and reduction of bending is outlined. Finally the long-term fundamental SOFC R&D program at ECN is discussed. 11 refs.
