Germany-based E.ON (FWB: EOAN) has invested $100m in a California-based fuel cell manufacturer.

Bloom Energy has seen increasing demand for its electricity-led Energy Server fuel cells in the last four years, first in California and now across the USA.

The investment in Bloom should prove highly beneficial to E.ON, which is trying to reduce its carbon intensity.
