Bloom Energy’s fuel cell platform has received CE certification, allowing it to export to the European Union (EU) and its increasing market for fuel cells and dependable, sustainable energy. Bloom Energy’s fuel cells have received CE certification, assuring that they will be accessible to address EU energy needs.
To fulfill the growing need for clean and safe energy, the EU will need to scale up sustainable renewable fuel sources over the next decade. Fuel cells may be able to assist them in meeting their requirements. Bloom Energy’s solid oxide platform is fuel-agnostic, meaning it can create low- or zero-emission power using natural gas, hydrogen, renewables, or waste energy.
CE certification ensures that a product meets EU health, safety, and environmental criteria, and is required for manufacturers intending to sell in the EU.
In the United States, there is a comparable certification procedure called as Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) certification. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is in charge of NRTL certification (OSHA). The goal is to verify that items fulfill the requirements of relevant product safety standards, such as those issued by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and other standard-setting organizations. Bloom Energy is still UL-certified.
What does Bloom Energy’s CE certification mean?
Europe’s installed fuel cell capacity increased by nearly 450 percent from 41 megawatts in 2018 to 190 megawatts in 2021. In Europe, the market for solid oxide fuel cells is still growing. Turkey and the European Free Trade Association’s Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland are among the nations that accept CE-labelled goods outside of the European Union.
Bloom Energy can now supply its fuel-flexible, robust energy solution to EU clients, including our most cutting-edge solid oxide fuel cell platform, thanks to its CE certification. It’s the logical next step in our expansion, and it gets us one step closer to supplying people all across the world with clean, reliable, and cheap energy. This year, Bloom Energy will send the first CE-certified product to the European Union.
