The purpose of this study is to quantify the impact of cell scale-up on the manufactured cost of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC). Specifically, the report considers the impact of both cell size and production volume on production cost and the trade-offs between these two factors. These assessments are made for four primary stack technologies: planar cells, rectangular cells, circular, and tubular cathode/anode-supported cells.
