Bloom Energy Installs Innovative Bloom Energy Server at New City Hall, Yokohama

Bloom Energy Japan Limited has announced that it has installed and started operating the “Bloom Energy Server,” an innovative and clean electricity generation system, for the new City Hall of Yokohama (Yokohama City Hall) on May 17th, 2020 in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture. The Bloom Energy Server installed at the new building of Yokohama City Hall can produce 200 kilowatts of power and provides about 10% of the building’s annual power consumption. It is configured as a microgrid, which consistently provides power and continues supplying electricity in the event of a power outage.

The Bloom Energy Server is a breakthrough solid oxide fuel cell technology that generates clean electricity at over 60% 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. This is the first Bloom Energy Server installation at a public administration building in Japan.

Bloom Energy Japan’s supplying of electricity generated by the Bloom Energy Server at Yokohama City Hall contributes in securing stable and continuous power supply for Yokohama’s administrative functions, while further promoting environmental sustainability by reducing carbon dioxide emissions, and ensuring the administrative continuity in emergencies.
