Abstract

This study focuses on the use of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) to large commercial buildings in Japan. This is a novel combined heat and power (CHP) application. SOFC has high power generation efficiency and is expected to be adopted by buildings with relatively smaller heat loads. The effect of CHP is determined by the energy demand of the building, and the energy demand varies not only by the building application but also by region. Therefore, in this study, the adoption of SOFC is analyzed by an optimization model considering energy demand for each region in the case of hospitals, hotels, retail stores and offices as typical commercial buildings. The regional distribution of potential SOFC is also discussed by aggregating them using Geographic Information System (GIS).
