3 thoughts on “Owens Corning CSO Discusses Bloom Energy

  1. It appears this company is aggressively looking to increase their electricity energy efficiency.
    I wonder if they have yet looked at their natural gas consumption and efficiency. A lot of natural gas is being blown up chimney’s across the country as HOT exhaust into the atmosphere. To help reduce global warming they will have to apply the technology of Condensing Flue Gas Heat Recovery. This technology can also help them to conserve water.

  2. sPer megawatt hour, Bloom’s solid oxide fuel cell produce more greenhouse gas emissions than combined cycle natural gas, at 8 times the cost. The Federal and State subsidy schemes benefit big businesses, like Owens Corning, Walmart, Google, etc, by passing on the high costs of installation to ratepayers and taxpayers.

  3. FYI

    Federal Lawsuit Regarding Bloom Energy

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/21/884-May-Be-Bloom-Energys-Fatal-Number-Fuel-Cell-Efficiency-Federal-State-Tax-Credits

    “Buried deep in the permit application, in Table 1 on page 161 of a 163-page application, was the number 884. On that page, under penalty of perjury, Bloom officially told the world that its energy servers emit 884 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt hour.

    Also buried on page 161 of the permit application is a Table 2 notation that says these 235 “clean” servers would emit 22.56 pounds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) per day. But Delaware, like other states, regulates VOC emissions at far lower levels (Maryland, for instance, regulates boat repair shops that emit more than 15 pounds per day). Moreover, if the same amount of power had been generated by combined cycle gas turbines, only 0.249 pounds of VOCs would be emitted daily. That’s 90 times less pollution!
    To top it off, because of the Bloom servers’ low efficiency and high capital cost, Delaware citizens will pay Bloom over $200 per megawatt hour of power delivered to their electricity transmission grid. But in January 2012, the U.S. Energy Information Agency said the projected “levelized” cost of electricity over the next 30 years from advanced gas-fired combined cycle power stations is $65.50 per MWH.
