C3 AI (NYSE: AI), the Enterprise AI application software company, and Bloom Energy (NYSE: BE), a leading provider of clean energy solutions, today announced that the companies are working together to implement innovative AI-based solutions to broaden the scope and precision of Bloom's product monitoring technology.

With the C3 AI Reliability Suite, Bloom Energy will be able to enhance operational excellence, improve reliability, and maximize energy output of their fuel cell servers. AI-based insights will provide timely recommendations to Bloom's remote monitoring teams to improve fuel-cell server performance.

With a gigawatt of installed capacity, Bloom receives and monitors a billion real-time performance data points daily from its energy systems and has advanced the use of data analytics in the energy sector to both monitor and refine fuel cell performance and support new science, research, and technology innovation. Now, Bloom's remote engineering teams will use AI recommendations, alerts, and workflows within the C3 AI Reliability uite to adjust fuel cell operating parameters that impact cell performance and lifetime, further refining Bloom's operational excellence.



"This collaboration highlights innovation from both C3 AI and Bloom Energy and how we can work toward building the next generation of reliable power," said Thomas M. Siebel, Chairman and CEO, C3 AI. "C3 AI has deep expertise in AI-based reliability applications that help customers improve the overall health and lifetime of advanced equipment. Combining our deep AI application expertise with Bloom's novel technology stack will enable Bloom to improve operational efficiency and ultimately drive increased customer satisfaction and success."

The Bloom Energy platform provides reliable, resilient, and sustainable energy to businesses and communities. Bloom's fuel cells are based on a proprietary solid oxide technology and operate at high efficiency without combustion allowing for flexible deployment and operating customization based on a combination of cost, resilience, and sustainability considerations.


"We are committed to driving innovation, reducing costs, and maximizing the potential of our fuel cell platform to deliver world class solutions to our customers," said KR Sridhar, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Bloom Energy. "This collaboration marks another step towards delivering on our vision to make clean, reliable energy affordable to everyone in the world."

With the help of AI, Bloom can further enhance its projects to design for customer needs and continue delivering world class energy solutions.
