High-Temperature Electrochemistry Center

The High-Temperature Electrochemistry Center (HiTEC) is a research collaboration focused on technical breakthroughs needed to accomplish the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Fossil Energy's vision for energy plants of the future. Its mission is to provide cross-cutting, multidisciplinary research that leads to advanced electrochemical technologies for minimizing the environmental consequences of using fossil fuel to generate energy. This collaborative effort is managed by the National Energy Technology Laboratory and PNNL. As part of this program, researchers are delivering the technical foundation necessary to bring together components of future fossil energy plants including fuel cells, turbines and hybrid energy generation systems.
