Silicon Valley based clean energy start-up Bloom Energy will leave their stealth mode at 10am pacific today. Bloom Energy made a major splash over the weekend in CBS's 60 minutes. The fuel cell powered Bloom boxes are hailed to revolutionize clean energy.

The Bloom Box is supposed to become cheap enough to be placed in your back yard to power your home. Bloom Boxes are selling right now for around $700,000. Bloom Energy already has high profile customers including Google, eBay and Fedex that can afford them with some serious subsidies from the state of California.


The Bloom boxes produce electricity from bio gas, fossil gas or other fuels via a solid oxide fuel cell. The technology works, but the major challenge is to reduce the price to make the Bloom box affordable for home owners. Forbes has an interesting article on the challenges of the Bloom Energy technology. Hopefully, later today we will be surprised by how far Bloom Energy has developed to Bloom Box. The Bloom Box is not entirely clean as it still produces CO2. It is also not known yet how efficient it really is.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
