Nippon Oil, Ebara Ballard Launch Open Field Test of Coil-oil Fueled 1kW PEFC System for Household Use
 

Tokyo, Aug 18, 2005 (JCN) - Nippon Oil (TSE: 5001) and Ebara Ballard announced on August 17 that they have started field testing a 1kW household use proton-exchange membrane fuel cell (PEFC) system that uses coil oil as a fuel.

In the world's first household test that has used a coil oil-fueled power fuel cell, the companies have installed testing equipment in a total of nine homes (four houses and five collective housing units.

The previous tests showed that the PEFC system achieves power generation efficiency more than 33% higher and overall efficiency more than 86% higher than the initial targets. The system is made in such a way that it can operate at -10 deg C.

Nippon Oil and Ebaar Ballard are aiming to commercialize the system in fiscal 2006 by improving power generation efficiency and heat recovery efficiency and strengthening their collaborative product development capability.
