High-temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cells, Second Edition, explores the growing interest in fuel cells as a sustainable source of energy. The text brings the topic of green energy front and center, illustrating the need for new books that provide comprehensive and practical information on specific types of fuel cells and their applications. This landmark volume on solid oxide fuel cells contains contributions from experts of international repute, and provides a single source of the latest knowledge on this topic.

About Author

Professor Kendall was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1993, following more than twodecades of advancing research in fuel cells and materials. Previously, he has worked at the University ofKeele and Akron University, and has worked in research at Joseph Lucas, British Railways and ICI.Professor Kendall is especially noted in the USA where his patents on microtubular SOFCs have beenexploited by two companies (Acumentrics and Nanodynamics) which have since received about 30M$ offunding for product development. He is also the founder and chief of the Birmingham start-up company.Adelan which specializes in SOFC technology. He received the Award for Excellence of the AmericanAdhesion Society in 1999, one of only three Britons ever to achieve this, and was awarded the Wakemedal for adhesion in 2005.He is Fellow of the Royal Society, Fellow of the Institute of Physics, Member of the Institute of Materials,Editorial board member for J Adhesion & Adhesives, member of the Hooke Committee of Royal Societyand is Secretary of the Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Centre. His research specializations include fuel cellscience and technology, especially for domestic houses, and Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). He runs themajor SOFC conference in the UK and is also on the Grove and Fuel Cell Forum conference committees.His current research projects include; collaboration with Adelan Ltd on fuel cell development, theREALSOFC European project, collaboration with Shell on fuel reforming and a project with Baxi onimplementation of fuel cell systems in domestic houses.
