Bloom Energy Corp. is launching its Series 10 product, a 10-megawatt (MW) fuel cell offering with a five-year, flat-rate contract shipped in 50 days to quickly meet power needs without committing to a long-term contract or cost increases, the company announced in a July 24 press release.

At 10 MW—enough to power 8,000 homes—the Series 10 enhances cost, deployment speed and operations and guarantees 100% output for the duration of the term, the company said.

The net zero-compliant technology generates electricity through an electrochemical process instead of combustion, phasing out air pollutants and poor air quality. Using Bloom’s Energy Server technology, the offering can operate on hydrogen, responsibly-sourced natural gas, renewable natural gas or a blend of those fuels.

“We’ve heard from customers that they need power now and flexibility through the energy transition,” Tim Schweikert, head of global sales at Bloom Energy, said in the press release. "With a short, five-year term, this offering fits the needs of a wide array of industries—from data centers to health care to utilities—and will change the way businesses buy power.”

Bloom Energy is a fuel cell public company headquartered in San Jose, California, that has deployed over 1 gigawatts of clean, reliable power. Bloom said it leads the fuel cell industry in the U.S. with 95% of the market share of installed fuel capacity since 2018.
