Bloom Energy announced it installed and started operating the Bloom Energy Server, a clean electricity generation system, for the Yokohama City Hall in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The Bloom Energy Server installed at the new building of Yokohama City Hall can produce 200 kilowatts of power and provides about 10 percent of the building’s power consumption.
It is configured as a microgrid, which consistently provides power and continues supplying electricity in the event of a power outage, Bloom Energy said.
The Bloom Energy Server solid oxide fuel cell technology generates clean electricity at over 60 percent efficiency during initial performance. Bloom Energy Servers have been installed in many locations that require uninterrupted power supply such as data centers, manufacturing operations, communications, and facilities with high energy loads including refrigeration and critical services in the U.S.
