So, the "Bloom Box" is the new black in alternative energy! K.R. Sridhar is the inventor of the Bloom Box, a group of fuel cells stacked together to form a new alternative energy source. Sridhar puts oxygen on one side of the fuel cell stack and fuel on the other side that forms a chemical reaction that constantly produces energy.
Large companies like eBay, Google, Walmart and Fedex are already using and experimenting with the Bloom Box. The cost is high-$700k to $800K for a shiny new Bloom Box. There have been glitches that Sridhar has had to fix and he claims he makes quick business of it.
eBay's Donahoe says that they have 5 Bloom Boxes on their lawn that run on bio-gas from landfill waste. So far the boxes have saved them over $100,000 in electricity costs.
