SoftBank Takes Bloom Energy Fuel Cells to Japan

SoftBank and Bloom Energy are forming 50/50 Joint Venture to bring Bloom's fuel cell technology to Japan.

Bloom Energy's fuel cells are currently deployed in the United States by clients including AT&T, Google, eBay, The Coca Cola Company, Walmart and others.

  • In June 2013, Verizon announced plans to install Bloom Energy fuel cell systems at three of its California-based locations: two call-switching centers in Los Angeles and San Francisco and a data center in San Jose.  The solid oxide fuel cells are expected to generate more than 16 million kilowatt hours of clean electricity for Verizon in California each year.
  • NTT America is also using Bloom Energy servers in California.
