The boiler produces both heat and electricity. The design is small enough to be wall-mounted and is therefore compatible with the layout of most central heating systems in the UK.
At the heart of the system is a fuel-cell stack that uses ceramic inks to turn gas into electricity. It consumes domestic gas (natural gas, LPG or biofuels), and produces power in a quiet electro-chemical process.
Specifically, the stack is a low cost and low temperature (500-600 degrees) Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) stack using cerium gadolinium oxide (CGO) in place of current industry standard ceramic, Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ), which allows the use of a stainless steel substrate to support the ceramic.
Ceres have agreements with British Gas and Calor Gas for marketing the product in Great Britain, and with Bord Gáis Éireann (‘BGE’) for the island of Ireland (including both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland).
