Chattanooga EPB to get Bloom Energy fuel cell pilot

[correction 0920 16 June] CEO KR Sridar, founder of Bloom Energy, recently revealed the company will place a 100-kilowatt prototype of its fuel cell at Electric Power Board (EPB) offices in Chattanooga. An earlier prototype had been at the Chattanooga-based SimCenter at UTC. The KNS' latest story examines the web of relationships that led to the decision. The KNS reported progress on the project, several weeks ago. Bloom has attracted Kleiner Perkins VC investment.
