To reduce global warming, many countries are shifting to sustainable energy production systems. Solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs) are being considered due to their high hydrogen generation efficiency. However, low faradaic efficiency in scaling SOEC technology affects costs and limits large-scale adoption of hydrogen as fuel. This review covers SOECs’ critical aspects: current state-of-the-art anode, cathode, and electrolyte materials, operational and materials parameters affecting faradaic efficiency, and computational modeling techniques to resolve bottlenecks affecting SOEC faradaic efficiency.
