Osaka Gas began selling the new version residential SOFC CHP system “ENE-FARM type S” in April 2016, which is developed in collaboration with Osaka Gas, Aisin Seiki, Kyocera and Noritz. Kyocera manufactures cell stacks, Aisin Seiki manufactures power generation units, and Noritz manufactures hot water supply units and remote control units. Power efficiency was improved to 52%(net AC,LHV), previous one 46.5%. It achieves a minimum size as a residential CHP system. Kyocera reduced the internal resistance of cell stack. And new coating technology that was developed Osaka Gas and Kyocera were used for the inter-cell connection parts. As a result, both reducing number of cells and improvement of power efficiency have been achieved. Moreover, Aisin Seiki has developed the power generation unit and the hot module for high power efficiency. We also started to trade surplus electricity from new SOFC CHP system.
