Bloom Energy unveils new electrolyser with more efficiency than market alternatives

Bloom Energy has unveiled its new “Bloom Electrolyser” today (July 14) that is said to be the most energy-efficient electrolyser to produce clean hydrogen to date with 15 to 45% more efficiency than other products on the market today.

The new electrolyser relies on the same commercially proven and proprietary solid oxide technology platform used by Bloom Energy Servers to provide on-site electricity at high fuel efficiency.

In being highly flexible, it offers unique advantages for deployment across a broad variety of hydrogen applications, using multiple energy sources including intermittent renewable energy and excess heat.

The Bloom electrolyser operates at high temperatures meaning that it requires less energy to break up water molecules and produce hydrogen.

As a result, Bloom Energy’s electrolyser consumes 15% less electricity than other electrolyser technologies to make hydrogen when electricity is the sole input source.
