Harvard University and Allied Minds have teamed to establish SiEnergy Systems, LLC to commercialize a novel thin film solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). The technology was originally developed from the research of Dr. Shriram Ramanathan at Harvard University. SiEnergy uses inexpensive silicon-based microfabrication and nanometer scale electrolytes to create SOFCs that operate at a commercially desirable temperature, and are scalable to meet various power requirements. Thin film SOFC is a promising technology for meeting cost and reliability challenges facing fuel cell developers. After several years of research activity at Harvard University, the company has moved to an off-campus location in Cambridge, Massachusetts for expanded development and commercialization efforts.
Dr. Ramanathan is Assistant Professor of Materials Science at Harvard University. SiEnergy Systems is committed to creating clean, efficient, and affordable power sources that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, oil consumption, and air pollution. We aim to create a better and brighter future through development of novel thin film solid oxide fuel cell technology.
