K. R. Sridhar is the founder and CEO of Bloom Energy, formerly Ion America, which started in 2001 with its mission to "make clean, reliable energy affordable for everyone on earth". In 2002, the company moved to the NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley. In 2010, Bloom Energy launched a new energy-efficient and environmentally friendly fuel cell known as the Bloom Box. Natural gas (or any other fuel) and oxygen are run through a stack of cells, producing electricity. The energy is clean and inexpensive, and Sridhar predicts that a $3000 box could be in every home within the next five to ten years. Companies such as Adobe Systems, Ebay, Google, FedEx, and Wal-Mart have already purchased larger sized boxes.
