Bloom Energy

Bloom Energy has developed a revolutionary on-site primary (base load) power generation system called a Bloom Energy Server based on proprietary fuel cell technology that provides a more reliable, cleaner and cost-effective alternative to the traditional electric power grid. This solution is designed to help businesses become more resilient and reduce uncertainty from grid dependence. Our technology, first developed for NASA's Mars Program, is among the most efficient power generation technology on the planet, providing significantly reduced operating costs and producing dramatically lower greenhouse gas emissions. Bloom Energy Servers are currently producing power for several Fortune 500 companies including Google, Walmart, AT&T, eBay, Staples, The Coca-Cola Company, as well as notable non-profit organizations such as Caltech and Kaiser Permanente. As one of Silicon Valley’s most promising startups, Bloom was the first clean energy technology investment for Kleiner Perkins and NEA, two of Silicon Valley’s most revered venture capital firms. The company has assembled a super-star board, experienced management team, and top-notch technical staff. Bloom Energy is growing quickly and is looking to add to its dynamic team.
