Consortium to develop UK showcasing Bloom Energy’s solid oxide power generation platform

December 2, 2021 |

In the UK, Bloom Energy, Conrad Energy, and Electricity North West (Construction and Maintenance) plan to collaborate on the development, construction and operation of behind-the-meter (BtM) projects to bring Bloom Energy’s solid oxide power generation platform to the UK market. Orders are expected to commence in December 2021.

Bloom’s fuel-flexible, non-combustion Energy Servers combine ambient air and biogas, hydrogen, or natural gas to create electricity through an electrochemical process without combustion at high efficiency. The result is a reduction in carbon emissions, air pollutants, and water usage. When hydrogen or biogas are used as the fuel source, the Energy Servers deliver on-site, 24/7, zero-carbon electricity all in a simple, modular and flexible design.

As part of the collaboration, Bloom Energy expects to supply its Energy Servers along with local servicing. Conrad Energy, a UK-based owner, operator and optimiser of energy assets, with a strong focus on behind the meter (BtM) energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions, will be the lead project financer and act as the primary energy supplier. Electricity North West (Construction and Maintenance) Ltd, a private electricity network asset service provider with over 1,000 commercial and industrial users in its maintenance portfolio, will lead the installation and offer the BtM solution to its commercial and industrial customers.

Fully financed by Conrad Energy, Bloom’s Energy Servers bring additional value to customers in terms of energy savings and the ability to support microgrid configurations, ensuring continuity of operations for mission critical loads with continuous inverter-based power. The technology will be offered to customers under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) structure, removing upfront capital costs while providing cost predictability across the term of the contract.
