This news has attracted an enormous attention in the SOFC society since it was published at www.fuelcelltoday.com. Due to optimized design and manufacture processing, as well as yield increase, the operating power per stack has improved from 500W to 700W at the same time of the price cut. We see a big interest in our product in these months, some of customers from US, Europe, Japan, and Korea already placed orders to make tests.
