The article reports that Topsoe Fuel Cell is scaling up the size of demonstration units for its solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC). The company received funding for the work from Energinet.dk and the energy research programme of the Danish energy authority. A test facility for SOFC is being erected at the HC Orsted power plant in Copenhagen, Denmark. The company is also reducing production costs by expanding current equipment and reducing rejection rates.
