GRID OUTAGES PROMPT HIGH-TECH
MANUFACTURER TO IMPLEMENT
Faced with escalating power outages and an increased risk of interruptions to its precision manufacturing operations, Silicon Valley’s JSR Micro Inc.
has selected Bloom Energy to deploy a
microgrid to provide its primary power.
JSR Micro is a subsidiary of JSR Corp.
a multinational company employing
more than 7,500 people worldwide and
a leading materials supplier in a vari-
ety of technology-driven markets. The
microgrid at JSR Micro will draw on-
site electric power from Bloom Energy
servers. It will enable the company’s
manufacturing, test and measurement,
and other facilities to operate indepen-
dently of the grid. JSR Micro expects
to significantly reduce its electricity
costs and its carbon footprint over the
lifetime of the deployment. The new
Bloom Energy microgrid, which will de-
liver 1. 1 MW of mission-critical electric
power, is designed to provide 99.99
percent availability. It will enable JSR
Micro to continue operations even if
the electrical utility grid fails. The mi-
crogrid is expected to be operational
by the end of 2018.
JSR Micro develops electronic ma-
terials for the semiconductor industry,
and its advanced manufacturing opera-
tions are highly sensitive to even small
power interruptions. Following persis-
tent challenges with the reliability of its
grid power supply, the company decided
to implement a microgrid that would in-
sulate it from the vulnerabilities of the
conventional grid transmission and dis-
Bloom Energy server.
