“My fellow Board members, the leadership team and I are thrilled to welcome CJ to our Board,” said KR Sridhar, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Bloom Energy. “She brings deep domain knowledge from her four decades of global experience at some of the biggest oil and gas companies. That experience coupled with her entrepreneurial successes, deep technical understanding of renewable fuels and energy transition position her to offer unique insights and perspectives to Bloom Energy and guide us in our journey to become the leader for decarbonized energy solutions.”

“Bloom Energy is one of the leading product innovators in the transition to clean energy and has just entered the net-zero fuels market with its record-breaking electrolyzer product using the same technology with which it revolutionized the on-site, base-load electricity market,” says Warner. “At a time when the electricity and molecules market are converging and creating new opportunities, I am delighted to be joining the Board and look forward to working with them and KR to keep Bloom at the forefront of renewable fuels, hydrogen, and clean power.”
