Bloom Energy inaugurated its high-volume electrolyzer production line at the Newark facility, bringing its electrolyzer production capacity to 2 GW.
The technology’s significant capabilities for hydrogen production are being demonstrated in partnerships with Xcel Energy and Idaho National Labs to harness nuclear and steam power and will be demonstrated with LSB Industries, Inc. to decarbonize industrial and agricultural sectors. Internationally, the technology is in use in South Korea.
The Bloom Electrolyzer supports a trajectory for hydrogen to become economically accessible by producing hydrogen up to 45% more efficiently than PEM and alkaline electrolyzers when combined with external heat.
Bloom Energy marked the expansion of its growing American manufacturing footprint this July with the grand opening of its new state-of-the-art, 164,000-square-foot, multi-gigawatt facility in Fremont, California. This facility represents a $200 million investment and is expected to create more than 400 additional clean energy jobs by year-end, bringing Bloom’s California headcount to nearly 2,000 in addition to its 715 Delaware employees.
Sharelynn Moore, EVP at Bloom Energy, said, “Through the domestic production of technologies like Bloom Energy’s electrolyzer, we are making strides towards American energy independence, as well as a sustainable clean hydrogen market, which is critical for decarbonizing hard-to-abate industries like fertilizer, steel, cement, and aviation.”
