ABSTRACT
The article reveals that Bloom Energy Corp. launched the Bloom Energy Server, a patented solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology. The Bloom Energy Server was developed using common beach sand to provide a cleaner, more reliable and more affordable option electric grid and traditional renewable energy sources. It provides distributed power generation to allow customers to efficiently create their own electricity on-site.
