BREAKTHROUGH IN ENERGY TECHNOLOGY


WASHINGTON: An Indian-American rocket scientist has invented a little power plant, which is being hailed as an important breakthrough in the energy sector as it is believed to replace the big power plants and transmission lines.Christened 'Bloom Box', it was be unveiled by K R Sridhar in the Silicon Valley , a preview of the product was given at the CBS's popular show '60 Minutes' before the launch of the machine.It is just like a laptop of the power sector, the CBS reported.Sridhar has formed the company Bloom Energy, which has raised some USD 400 million from venture capitalists of the Silicon Valley at a time when it is extremely difficult to churn out money due to the extreme grip of economic recession.Among its board of directors is the former Secretary of State Collin Powell, who became part of the effort last year.Formerly a rocket scientist and served as advisor to NASA, Sridhar says in a span of 10 years or so 'Bloom Box' will be available for residential areas at a nominal rate USD 3,000 to produce electricity in a small home round the clock year after year.Having earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Madras, earlier he was a professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering as well as Director of the Space Technologies Laboratory (STL) at the University of Arizona.The key to this unique Bloom Box is the "fuel cell device" which consists of a stack of ceramic disks coated with secret green and black "inks." These disks are separated by cheap metal plates.
