California-based Bloom Energy is now offering 100% hydrogen-powered fuel cells for on-site electricity generation 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Launching its Hydrogen Energy Servers technology today (Sep 29), the company said its new technology is well suited for islanded and remote communities with renewable resources.
Commenting on the launch, Deia Bayoumi, Vice-President of Product Management at Bloom Energy, said, “Bloom Energy has a complementary suite of solutions and strong partner ecosystem supporting both ends of the hydrogen economy – clean hydrogen production and efficient hydrogen utilisation.
“With these offerings and collaborative solutions, our technology can be applied for today’s needs and in the future as the hydrogen economy becomes more robust.”
Already, the Hydrogen Energy Servers have undergone testing as part of a pilot project with SK eco-plant in Ulsan, South Korea for the last five months.
Throughout the trials, the hydrogen-powered fuel cells provided 24/7, zero-carbon electricity at efficiency levels exceeding expectations.
Venkat Venkataraman, Executive Vice-President and Chief Technology Officer at Bloom Energy, added, “Our technology is distinctively suited to help hydrogen adopters thrive in the hydrogen economy.
“Bloom Energy’s hydrogen-powered fuel cells are built on the company’s solid-oxide platform that has higher efficiencies compared to other fuel cell technologies, generating more electricity from less hydrogen, and provides reliable power helping organisations reach to meet their zero-carbon objectives.”
Bloom Energy is now taking orders for the technology, with shipments expected in 2022.
US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power
What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?
North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.
What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
