About Event:

About Bloom Box In the current scenario, the Bloom Energy Server (the Bloom Box) is a novel technique and it’s a most demanded technology regarding cost and performance. The Bloom Box is a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) power generator made by Bloom Energy, Sunnyvale, California, that takes a variety of input fuels, including liquid or gaseous hydrocarbons. Electricity is produced from biological sources at or near the site where it will be used. This new class of distributed power generator produces clean, reliable, affordable electricity at the customer's site. It can withstand temperatures of up to 1,800 °F (980 °C). According to the company, a single cell (one 100 mm× 100 mm plate consisting of three ceramic layers) generates 25 watts. The Bloom Energy Server uses thin white ceramic plates (100 × 100 mm) that are made from components found in beach sand. Each plate is coated with a green nickel oxide-based ink on one side, forming the anode, and another black (probably Lanthanum strontium manganite) ink on the cathode side. These materials are widely known in the field of SOFCs. To save money, the Bloom Energy Server uses inexpensive metal alloy plates for electric conductance between the two ceramic fast ion conductor plates. In competing lower temperature fuel cells, platinum is required at the cathode.
