New Energy Solutions From Bloom Energy

Welcome to Ask Doug The Electrician!
Check out Bloom Energy! This is another possible way to produce energy cleanly.
Bloom Energy...A new fuel cell will promise. The system converts methane (or other hydrocarbons) into electricity by mixing it with oxygen and then passing the gas mixture through ceramic plates coated with proprietary inks at high temperatures. A U.S. patent filed in 2006 and granted to Bloom in 2009 seems to indicate "yttria stabilized zirconia". I'm not sure what this is but they are making clean energy with it.
