Bloom Energy and EnergyPower, today announced a joint effort to deploy an integrated solution for supplying clean, reliable power to local Indian businesses. Once complete, this project will be Bloom’s first commercial scale on-site biogas to electricity project in India.
EnergyPower will be deploying a new agricultural and municipal waste digester combined with Bloom Energy’s solid oxide fuel cell technology to deliver reliable, renewable power to customers in the Shirala district, Maharashtra.
Anaerobic digesters will be used to breakdown and clean biowaste to produce biomethane, which will fuel Bloom Energy Servers. The project will have a tremendous environmental impact, as methane is 25 times more potent in the atmosphere than CO2 emissions.
Bloom Energy plans to install and operate 4 MW of Bloom Energy Servers at the plant in Shirala, Maharashtra in the first half of 2020.
Developed in Silicon Valley, the Bloom Energy solid oxide fuel cell is the world’s highest efficiency electric generating device.
Energy Servers can use natural gas, biogas, or hydrogen as fuel, and produce power without combustion through an electrochemical process that generates virtually no smog-forming emissions.
EnergyPower is a zero carbon and net zero emissions technology company that combines many clean energy sources, including solar, thermal, wind, waste heat, and hydroelectric to maximize overall utilization and efficiency of electricity generation in India.
