Bloom Energy, ever heard of it? Until The Backpack Electricity System Review recently, most people hadn't. At seven hundred to eight hundred thousand dollars, it is no surprise that the average individual does not have much knowledge about this product. Ebay, Google, FedEx, and many other companies have been using this alternative energy source though, and with positive results.

Bloom Energy, founded by K.R. Sridhar, has created small fuel cell boxes, which they call "Bloom Boxes". Two of these small alternative fuel boxes have the ability to power a household in the United States, and in countries that use less energy, one may be enough. These boxes are about the size of a standard brick, and must be contained a larger unit, about the size of a refrigerator. These units could be stored outside the house, and would help provide clean, cheap energy.

Colin Powell, who sits on the Bloom Energy board of directors, talked up the company 60 Minutes. The company has also had significant backing from investors such as Kleiner Perkins, totaling nearly four hundred million dollars in funding.It is the hope of K.R. Sridhar that some day every home in the United States will be run off of Bloom Boxes. Unfortunately, with a six figure price tag, that time is not here yet. He does believe that in the next five to ten years, he will be able to get the price down to about three thousand dollars, which is more more realistic for the average American.

An estimated one and a half billion people currently live without electricity. That is nearly a quarter of the world's population. Bloom Energy may be a way to fix this problem. Bloom was listed by the World Economic Forum as one of twenty six business models that could not only advance the global economy, but also have a positive impact on people's lives.There is still a lot that is not known about this companies plans. They have a very simply catch phrase, "Be The Solution". It seems simple enough, and very straight forward. The cloud of mystery should be lifted soon, as more and more information about the Bloom Box is reveled.
