Brief description of the Partner 

SOLIDpower is an international group of companies, a leader in the field of SOFC (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell) technologies and a manufacturer of BlueGEN, the world’s most efficient micro-CHP (combined heat and power) appliance. Founded at the end of 2006 in Italy, it has rapidly developed into today’s corporation with branches also in Germany, Switzerland and Australia after the important acquisitions of HTceramix SA and Ceramic Fuel Cells GmbH in 2007 and 2015. In the NAUTILUS project, SOLIDPower is represented by its main seat in Italy, SOLIDPower SPA and its branch SOLIDPower SA in Switzerland.

SOLIDpower is a continuously growing team of currently more than 200 people and operates two manufacturing plants for the production of m-CHP systems and fuel cell stacks. SOLIDpower’s primary aim is to bring fuel cell m-CHPs and other solutions to the mass market and is increasingly investing in the scaling-up of the production capacity and further technical improvement of their technology platform to guarantee a continuous cost reduction and be able to offer ready-commercial products at competitive prices. With more than 1000 units already installed and the development of state-of-the-art fuel cell solutions, SOLIDpower commits to contributing in the first line to the energy transition of Europe.
