David Ozment, Senior Director of Energy at Walmart talks about his energy demands and why Walmart chose Bloom Energy.
Walmart is known for everyday low prices; an idea they apply to all departments. Energy is one of the largest operating expenses, so reducing energy costs is one of Walmart’s goals. Additionally, in 2005 they set 3 broad, sustainable goals including to create zero waste, sell sustainable products, and be supplied by 100% renewable energy. They needed a clean, affordable energy solution that had the potential to supply continuous power to stores, even during critical grid outages. Walmart found that Bloom’s affordable energy solution met all of their needs and more.
