Fuel cell eco-efficiency calculator (FCEC): A simulation tool for the environmental and economic performance of high-temperature fuel cells

A useful tool for quick assessment of the environmental performance of SOFC and SOEC systems. It provides coherent and quality-assured life cycle data, serves as a guidance model for scale-up and enables non-experts to assess the lifecycle performance, economic returns and overall eco-efficiency of SOFC/SOEC systems at the conceptual design stage.

The tool uses LCA-ReCiPe 2016 methodology for key environmental performance indicators and is freely downloadable in the "Results" section of this website.
