Japan Fuel Cell Market Ripe After Fukushima, Bloom Energy Says

Japan is primed following the 2011 Fukushima earthquake and tsunami to adopt more power supply devices that can withstand disasters and complement services provided by utilities, Bloom Energy Japan Ltd. said.

Japan’s fuel cell market is currently led by individual users with small systems in their homes. Bloom Energy Japan is targeting larger power consumers such as office buildings, factories and data centers, Shigeki Miwa, chief executive officer of the company, said Sept. 2 in an interview in Tokyo.
