Bloom Energy is the company that develops, builds, installs Bloom Energy Servers.[1] The company, started in 2002 by CEO K.R. Sridhar,[1] is one of 26 named a 2010 Tech Pioneer by the World Economic Forum.[2]


History

In October 2001, Sridhar had a meeting with John Doerr from the large venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins.[3] Sridhar was asking for more than $100 million to start the company. Bloom Energy has received $400 million of start-up funding from venture capitalists, including Kleiner Perkins[4] and Vinod Khosla.[5]

The company, originally called Ion America, was renamed to Bloom Energy in 2006.[6]

Sridhar credited his nine-year-old son for the name, saying that his son believed jobs, lives, environment and children would bloom.[7] One of the celebrities appearing at the product launch was Michael R. Bloomberg, who appeared by video link.[8] Bloomberg's business news network covered the event, but was attributed every statement to "Bloom Energy".[9]

The CEO gave a media interview (to Fortune Magazine) for the first time in 2010, eight years after founding the company, because of pressure from his customers.[1] A few days later he allowed a journalist (Lesley Stahl of the CBS News program 60 Minutes) to see the factory for the first time.[10] On February 24, 2010, the company held its first press conference.[6]
