Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) has launched a new pressurised hybrid
power generation system that integrates solid oxide fuel cell stacks (SOFC) with micro gas
The system has a broad range of commercial and industrial applications and is an attractive
choice for distributed or cogeneration power systems. It offers significant advantages in terms
of energy efficiency and environmental protection.
Developed through the process of 250 kW class demonstration testing, supported by Japan's
New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) research agency.
The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry is promoting greater adoption of fuel
cell systems due to their outstanding power generation efficiency and minimal carbon dioxide
(CO 2 ) emissions. New technologies in this field can support the development of energy-
saving, low-carbon societies.
