Bloom Energy Corporation (the “Company”) created the first
large-scale, commercially viable solid oxide fuel-cell based power
generation platform that provides clean and resilient power to
businesses, essential services, and critical infrastructure. The
Company’s technology, invented in the United States, is the most
advanced thermal electric generation technology on the market
today. The Company’s fuel-flexible Bloom Energy Servers can use
biogas and hydrogen, in addition to natural gas, to create
electricity at significantly higher efficiencies than traditional,
combustion-based resources. In addition, the Company’s solid oxide
platform can also be used to create hydrogen, which is increasingly
recognized as a critically important tool necessary for the full
decarbonization of the energy economy. Hydrogen is produced from
the Company’s Electrolyzer, announced in July 2021 and currently in
demonstration with certain customers and partners. The Company has
a broad array of enterprise customers from various industries for
its Energy Servers, who value reliable, sustainable and cost
predictable energy. The Company also has strong relationships with
some of the largest utility companies in the United States and the
Republic of Korea.
The Company has determined that two products manufactured or
contracted to be manufactured contained tin, tungsten, tantalum
and/or gold or its derivatives that were necessary to their
functionality or production: the Bloom Energy Server, a stationary
power generation platform and the Bloom Energy Electrolyzer, a
stationary producer of green hydrogen.
