Bloom Energy unveils new electrolyser with more efficiency than market alternatives

It is also located nearby to the Port of Los Angeles, and this can be utilised for domestic and international shipping.

Bloom Energy and Heliogen unveiled recently that it can successfully produce green hydrogen at an accelerated rate by combing both companies’ expertise and technologies.

Heliogen’s AI-enabled concentrated solar energy system is designed to create non-intermittent, carbon-free steam, electricity, and heat from sunlight.

When combined with Bloom Energy’s proprietary solid oxide, high-temperature electrolyser, hydrogen can be produced 45 percent more efficiently than with low-temperature polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) and alkaline electrolysers.

Bill Gross, CEO of Heliogen, said, “The Brenda SEZ is an ideal location for commercial-scale green hydrogen production due to the ample local water supply and its close proximity to potential offtake partners and key distribution channels.

“We look forward to providing updates on our plans to develop the facility and will leverage our proprietary, AI-enabled concentrated solar power technology to produce cost-effective green hydrogen.

“We are grateful to the Bureau of Land Management for their support and clarity throughout the process and are looking forward to continuing our work together.”
