Bloom Energy and Sembcorp announce collaboration to bring low-carbon solutions to Singapore

Wed 12 Jun 2024

Solid oxide fuel cell technology company, Bloom Energy, has announced a collaboration with Sembcorp Industries to produce reliable, low-carbon electricity to Singapore.

The collaboration was organised under the guidance of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) and will potentially utilise Bloom’s proprietary solid oxide fuel cell technology and third-party proven carbon capture technologies.

This collaboration aligns with Singapore’s Green Data Centre Roadmap, focusing on developing sustainable data centres with increased utilisation of green energy. By integrating Bloom’s fuel cell Energy Server product with carbon capture technology, the collaboration hopes data centres can benefit from low-carbon power.

“Through the collaboration with Bloom Energy, Sembcorp aims to support our users with low-carbon energy through the deployment of solid oxide energy systems. The demand for green energy is expected to have robust growth, especially in the area of data centres,” said Koh Chiap Khiong, CEO for Singapore and Southeast Asia at Sembcorp.

This system has the potential to provide green energy in the future by leveraging low-carbon feedstock. , The Energy Servers can also be deployed as grid parallel systems alongside utility power to alleviate grid constraints.

Headquartered in Singapore, Sembcorp has a balanced energy portfolio of 21.2GW, including 14.4GW of gross renewable energy capacity, across 10 countries. The company delivers sustainable solutions to drive energy transition by leveraging its sector expertise and global track record.

“The Bloom-Sembcorp collaboration will have lasting impacts on multiple levels … Singapore’s established position as a high-tech manufacturing hub will be further cemented as Bloom and Sembcorp provide the low-carbon electricity from the high-tech solid oxide fuel cells coupled with proven carbon capture technologies,” said KR Sridhar, Founder, Chairman, and CEO at Bloom Energy.

Sridhar added the use of carbon capture technology will support Singapore’s progress towards achieving its net-zero emissions target by 2050, adding that the company believes this will serve as a model for the broader region, and the world.
