Fayetteville PWC, Bloom Energy Partner on Waste Biogas-to-Energy (Ind. Report)
Fayetteville PWC, Bloom Energy
Date: 2022-05-09
In North Carolina, the Fayetteville Public Works Commission (PWC) and Bloom Energy are reporting plans to install and operate 1.5 MW of Bloom Energy's solid oxide fuel cells to create renewable energy from multiple biogas streams in PWC's service area.

Bloom Energy's fuel cells combine ambient air with fuel, such as biogas, to create electricity without combustion. Generating power from multiple biogas streams, the fuel cell installation will be among the first of its kind to blend multiple waste gas sources to produce clean, carbon-neutral electricity. The project will use biogas captured from PWC's Cross Creak Water Reclamation facility, an adjacent landfill, and methane gases captured from local and neighboring hog farms. The fuel cells will complement PWC's existing renewable energy sources and help the agency meet North Carolina Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard requirements, according to the release.

Bloom Energy Tapped for Indian Green Hydrogen Microgrid (Int'l.)
Bloom Energy
Date: 2021-12-29
San Jose, California-headquartered hydrogen fuel cell specialist Bloom Energy reports it has been tapped by NTPC Limited, India's largest energy conglomerate and utility, to provide electrolyzer and hydrogen-powered fuel cell technologies for India's first green hydrogen-based energy storage deployment. Thee project aims to explore large-scale, off-grid hydrogen energy storage and microgrid projects at strategic locations throughout the country.

The collaboration will utilize Bloom Energy's solid oxide, high temperature electrolyzer to generate green hydrogen from solar powered electricity. The project is expected to commence in 2022.

Bloom Energy's high-temperature electrolyzer produces hydrogen more efficiently than low-temperature PEM and alkaline electrolyzers. Bloom's solid oxide fuel cells combine ambient air with natural gas, biogas, hydrogen, or a blend of fuels to produce electricity through a non-combustion electrochemical reaction, resulting in reduced carbon emissions, harmful air pollutants, and water use compared to grid alternatives, according to Bloom.

Bloom Energy, SK Expanding Hydrogen Partnership (Ind. Report)
Bloom Energy
Date: 2021-10-27
San Jose, California-headquartered hydrogen fuel cell developer Bloom Energy and Seoul, South Korea-based engineering and construction firm SK ecoplant Co. Ltd, are reporting plans to expand their partnership and to establish market leadership in the hydrogen economy.

To that end, SK ecoplant will purchase a minimum of 500 MW from Bloom Energy over three years for a $4.5 billion commitment; co-create two hydrogen innovation centers in the U.S. and South Korea; and target an equity investment of approximately $500 million.

SK ecoplant will also invest $255 million in Bloom Energy by acquiring 10 million shares of zero coupon, non-voting redeemable convertible preferred stock at a price of $25.50 per share. Bloom Energy intends to use the proceeds for market growth, rapid commercialization of hydrogen solutions, and for general corporate purposes, according to the release.

Since the start of their strategic partnership three years ago, Bloom Energy -- SK ecoplant's largest strategic partner in clean energy -- and SK ecoplant have transacted nearly 200 MW of projects together totaling more than $1.8 billion of equipment and expected service revenue, according to the release.

Equinix Touts New Data Center Energy Efficiency (Ind. Report)
Equinix, USGBC
Date: 2021-06-02
In the Golden State, Redwood City-based Equinix, Inc. , the world's largest digital infrastructure company, is reporting the expected June 30th opening of its SV11 Data Center, the company's newest fuel-cell powered International Business Exchange&trade ; (IBX) data center at its Great Oaks campus in San Jose.

The $142 million SV11 facility is targeting US Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Silver certification with an ultra-low design average annual Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.17, a renewable energy procurement strategy and the use of energy-efficient systems throughout. Additionally, with expansion of the current Bloom Energy fuel cells, the campus is planned for 20 MW of capacity, and will be the first time Equinix will use the system as primary generation with utility electrical grid and generators as backup sources.

Bloom Energy Deploys First Hydrogen Powered Fuel Cell (Ind. Report)
Bloom Energy
Date: 2021-05-12
California-based Bloom Energy reports it and Seoul, South Korea-headquartered SK Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. have successfully deployed 100 kilowatts of solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFC) powered solely by hydrogen in Ulsan, South Korea, generating zero-carbon onsite electricity.

Bloom Energy first announced its initial plans to enter the commercial hydrogen market in July 2020, which includes an intended 1-MW hydrogen-powered Energy Server installation with SK E&C by 2022. Additionally, Bloom Energy intends to supply its solid-oxide electrolyzer cells (SOEC), which are designed to produce green hydrogen via solar and battery, to South Korea in 2022 as part of the RE100 project. The green hydrogen produced by the SOEC, which is created through electrolysis by converting water and renewable electricity into hydrogen without carbon emissions, will be used to power the hydrogen SOFC.

Hydrogen fuel cells, which convert hydrogen into electricity through a non-combustion electrochemical process, are increasingly recognized as an essential tool for full decarbonization, according to the release.

US Hydrogen Forward Coalition Launched (Ind. Report, Alt. Fuel)

Date: 2021-02-10
In the U.S., eleven companies -- Air Liquide, Anglo American, Bloom Energy, CF Industries, Chart Industries, Cummins Inc., Hyundai, Linde, McDermott, Shell and Toyota -- have formed Hydrogen Forward coalition focused on advancing hydrogen development nationwid.

The coalition members, all of which are involved in the hydrogen economy, see a lack of U.S. policy support for hydrogen which they say is derailing their decarbonisation efforts and inhibiting economic growth and important technology. The Hydrogen Forward coalition aims to support policies that accelerate the energy transition, enable the US to engage more with energy and climate leadership, and above all, want to "establish a clear, comprehensive strategy for hydrogen and related infrastructure development."
