Mitsubishi Power Receives Order For First Solid Oxide Fuel Cell In Europe

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Fuel Cells Works.

A fuel cell converts a fuel like hydrogen or natural gas directly into heat and electricity, so what is a solid state fuel cell?

Wikipedia has an entry for solid state fuel cell, that appears to be professionally written.

The entry sums up their advantages and disadvantages in this sentence.

Advantages of this class of fuel cells include high combined heat and power efficiency, long-term stability, fuel flexibility, low emissions, and relatively low cost. The largest disadvantage is the high operating temperature which results in longer start-up times and mechanical and chemical compatibility issues.

They sound to be a tricky engineering challenge.
