Industry at
a Glance

Chemical manufacturers are large energy consumers whose operations and processes depend on available, reliable, high quality power.

Base loads are designed to run 24/7/365 to protect and maintain delicate chemical processes occurring at the plant.

Safety is #1 concern for plant operators, further driving the need for a highly resilient solution that mitigates risk, prevents any unplanned downtime that may put employees at risk.

Quick Facts About
Chemicals Manufacturing

  • Financial impact due to an outage: $20-50M per day for a full power loss event
  • Tolerance period: <1 sec: 99.999% resiliency is required, which represents 5 minutes and 16 seconds of downtime per year
  • Energy expenditures account for ~12% of total establishment cost
  • High energy-intensive products account for up to 85% of total production costs

Resilient Solution

Bloom provides a highly available always-on primary power source with up to 6-9s reliability, eliminating the need to invest in operating and maintaining legacy equipment that tends to fail during transitional events such as loss of utility power.

Sustainable Solution

Fuel cells generate electricity though an electrochemical process rather than combustion. This avoids emitting harmful criteria air pollutants that cause severe respiratory diseases and poor air quality worldwide. Fuel cells reduce carbon emissions compared to the grid and combustion-based technologies, and are also fuel flexible with the ability to run on biogas or hydrogen for carbon neutral emissions options.

Predictable Solution

In addition to avoiding outage-related costs that can reach into the millions of dollars, Bloom’s solution enables customers to hedge against volatility and price escalation by fixing a large portion of their electricity cost, providing multiple financing options and flexible term lengths.
