Adobe installs Bloom Energy’s fuel cell servers to generate green power
Adobe has made a green move recently, hooking up with Bloom Energy to install fuel cell servers that will help power up around on-third of the company’s electricity needs. Adobe’s San Jose, California, headquarters will have all this green energy to its disposal. 12 fuel cell servers will be installed on the fifth floor of Adobe’s West Tower, each of which will contain thousands of ceramic fuel cells, converting fuel and oxygen from the air into an electric current and roughly the size of a van. This initiative will help Adobe reduce its carbon-footprint by a whole 121.5 million pounds in 10 years time. Each Bloom Box, as the company has named it, costs between $700,000 and $800,000 and generates energy enough to light up 100 U.S. homes.
And for this, Adobe and Bloom Energy sure deserve a cheer of appreciation!
