ASPIRE Forum 2016: Sustainable & Alternative Energy with Bloom


The ASPIRE forum is a convergence of innovative
pioneers in the industry of energy and technology. It’s great to see familiar faces, people have
been here last year, new faces, welcome one and all. It’s a year since we got this dialogue going
almost. What’s happened in the world? What’s changed? First thing the report just came out about
2015, it has been the warmest year since we started recording climate and temperature,
since 1880, 136 years. We can dialogue and discuss and hear about
what the latest trends are and really think about what the vision ought to be for energy
management, energy distribution, and energy generation of the future. Everything we do requires energy and the way
we do it today is just not scaled to grow. Energy is the ultimate scale problem. If you don’t have scale you don’t have a solution. What you have is a hobby, but I wouldn’t try
to affect the climate as a hobby. Business itself is going to have to fundamentally
change, take actions to reduce carbon, to increase focus on environmental sustainability. The world at 35 years from now is going to
have nine and a half billion people and have astronomical increases in food, energy, water,
resource demands, emissions and how do you think about that and actually say that’s a
business opportunity? Our mission really is to try to reduce Apple’s
carbon footprint to zero. Overall you can see our facilities are growing
worldwide but our carbon footprint is actually quantitatively reducing. There’s the sort of the standard sustainable
energy programs that are out there, but we’re looking for unique and some disruptive ideas
that help to create this micro climate environment. We want to be able to set examples, innovate,
we want new technologies to take over, we don’t just want wind, we don’t just want solar. We want things are going to transform the
entire energy markets. We currently have seven operating projects
in fourteen countries with thirteen different technologies. The power goes out every single day, sometimes
two, three, four times. When it goes out we have to start diesel generators
that burn very very dirty oil and may or may not come on. And as of about a month ago we have fuel cells
operating in India, Bangalore. We cannot continue on the trend that we are
and maintain our environment without doing something different. We have a hundred million square feet of real
estate, and a lot of branches and consumers interface with so the more we can get smart
and utilize that and take it back to others on our team, it’s a big benefit. Being passionate and driving towards of the
impact of energy, what that means in the future. We’ve had so much incredible progress in the
last thirty years. We’ve seen growth of technology, and we’ve
seen growth of development of disruptive technologies. As we try to change this industry, which is
so large, and the marketplace is so big, the impact it has on people’s lives across the
board is enormous. We as a country cannot move forward unless
the dialogue happens, there’s give and take, and we find an effective solution that takes
us in a different way.

  1. How has this technology change from 2010?
    Did Bloom increase the 25-Watt plate to 50-Watt or more?
    What have Bloom learn from all it's customers over the pass 17 years, that will help improved the technology?
    Have Bloom started creating consumer version of the BES (bloom energy server)?

  2. KR Sridhar is going to be the biggest scientist in next generation no one could understand what he actually invented. it takes time for people to understand his design KR Sridhar has done a far feature product in this time mind blowing work

  3. I HAVE WATCHED BLOOM ENERGY GROW BUT THEY EVEN WITH SOME OF THE MONEY OF BILL GATES IS NOT GROWING WITH THE DEMAND FOR ENERGY. AT THIS POINT OF TIME THEY SHOULD HAVE ALREADY VENTURED INTO ELECTRIC CARS. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE FOCUS OF BLOOM IS REALLY ONLY OFF GRID ENERGY. THEREFORE THEN THEY ARE ULTIMATELY WRONG. BATTERY IS THE ULTIMATE POWER SOURCE OF THE FUTURE IT SHALL POWER CARS, PLANES, SHIPS AND SO ON. THEY SHOULD START DOING SOME FOR THE NON OFF GRID DEMAND FOR ENERGY.

  4. i wonder how much oppression this company is faceing through economic and government/aka/corporate oppression? i dont need to know to know. i mean come on. look at history with G.E. suppressing Nikola Tesla! I will trade you TWENTY pennies for just one dollar. or you can have no pennies and IIIII can have 300 pennies for the next 30 years. evil exists in many forms

  5. Ya a we know the problems. Enough already. Stop dragging people around. Either stop the null information ads, and show us or shut up.

  6. KR Sridhar is going to be the biggest scientist , true. What will be the cost in India, a third world country, with your Innovation Sridhar ji and PM Modi vision, you could catapult India in a developed state!
