Jülich– They waited for it to achieve a lifetime of 100,000 hours before gradually bringing their lifetime test to a close a few days ago: researchers from Forschungszentrum Jülich developed a fuel cell and operated it at a temperature of 700 °C for more than 11 years.
During its lifetime, this high-temperature fuel cell produced electric power for more than 11 years – longer than any other high-temperature fuel cell so far.
Demonstrating such a long lifetime is viewed as an important step in the development of high-temperature fuel cells designed for maximum efficiency.
