Green Energy - Bloom's Energy Server

Install Bloom Energy Servers (or similar technology) globally on DoD installations. What is a Bloom Energy Server? Built with their patented solid oxide fuel cell technology, Bloom's Energy Server is a new class of distributed power generator, producing clean, reliable, affordable electricity at the customer site. Fuel cells are devices that convert fuel into electricity through a clean electro-chemical process rather than dirty combustion. They are like batteries except that they always run. This particular type of fuel cell technology is different than legacy "hydrogen" fuel cells in four main ways: Low cost materials – cells use a common sand-like powder instead of precious metals like platinum or corrosive materials like acids. High electrical efficiency – it can convert fuel into electricity at nearly twice the rate of some legacy technologies.

Fuel flexibility – systems are capable of using either renewable or fossil fuels. Reversible – the technology is capable of both energy generation and storage.

Each Bloom Energy Server provides 100kW of power, enough to meet the baseload needs of 100 average homes or a small office building... day and night, in roughly the footprint of a standard parking space. For more power simply add more energy servers.


This initiative would SAVE the DoD and taxpayers millions of dollars annually in electrical power costs and SAVE the environment as well. Several leading corporations in the U.S. have already started the transition to this clean energy source, taking them off of the traditional power grid in the process.


*Note: I'm not affiliated or sponsoring the Bloom Energy corporation (wish I did, maybe I would get paid) but this is the future of energy technology being used today.
