Technical programme

The three-day conference will feature parallel sessions with invited and contributed papers and posters. The Scientific Advisory Committee ensures that all presentations are of high quality.

The technical programme will range from fundamental science and discussions on new materials, through cell, stack, and system development, to the latest achievements from commercial deployment. The 2020 Motto is Enabling Solid Oxide Technologies - Developments and Achievements.

Chairs of the Conference

Prof. Dr. Dr. Anke Hagen

is professor at the Department of Energy Conversion and Storage at the Technical University of Denmark. She holds a Dr. rer. nat. degree in the field of heterogeneous catalysis from the University of Leipzig 1994 and a Dr. tec. degree in the field of solid oxide fuel cells from the Technical University of Denmark 2018.

Anke held research positions at the University of Leipzig, Germany, Yale University, USA, University of Oldenburg, Germany, and Technical University of Denmark. Her research focused on heterogeneous catalysis, before she joined the research staff at the former Risø National Laboratory to work on electrochemistry and solid oxide cells in 2003, since 2007 part of the Technical University of Denmark.

In her current position she leads the development of electrochemical characterisation of solid oxide cells and other electrochemical devices, and is responsible for the coordination of the solid oxide fuel cell program at DTU Energy. Anke Hagen is author/co-author of 91 publications in reviewed scientific journals (134 in total), several book chapters and two patents.

Prof. Peter Vang Hendriksen

heads the section “Mixed conductors” at the Department of Energy Conversion and Storage at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) which currently counts ca. 20 employees. Peter did his Ph.D. at the Laboratory of Technical Physics, DTU, from where he graduated in 1993 with a dissertation on magnetic properties of nanoparticles. Immediately after, he joined the research group at the former Risø National Laboratory in Denmark working on development of solid oxide fuel cells. Initially he worked on modelling of stacks but soon got involved in materials development and testing activities. He became a member of the management team in 2003.

Peter has led several projects on materials and component development both in the area of SOFC and SOEC, and has served as work package leader coordinator on multi-partner European projects in the related area of oxygen transport membranes.

His current research involves synthesis and characterization of functional oxides (charge transport and catalytic properties), high temperature corrosion, mechanical and fracture mechanical issues in functional ceramics and various aspects of SOEC development. He is the author/co-author of more than 125 papers in reviewed scientific journals, 75 conference papers, 18 patents and several book chapters.
