Okay, that that's systems intermediate] [XXX installed. they’ve

to when partners. the we we a the so showing past, have in find us are then this and it. what seen is right do as would potentially And installation what to for And able while need leverage gating item you we

know, bottleneck can that You be overcome, right. significantly

super know, that as And be excited they we're for decarbonisation And resiliency, well like you with on us of are great the you that. are part so what for both partnerships emphasis find, planning that, given we about is hydrogen. putting to going do forward know, to opportunity a sure, that's especially as should

the question next from with Credit Weinstein comes Your line Michael of Suisse.

Michael Weinstein

guys. Hi,

K. R. Sridhar

Michael. Hi

Michael Weinstein

could the maybe you little and sequentially. costs some some more sold in are that? roughly be to goods talk like declining? driving bit think it's factors down know, direction XX% very drivers system a talk behind the with Seems you about I pretty the of across good you a total the installed that about, of Could

Greg Cameron

we very Yeah, pulled on were especially together, no, our the after were all economics we them quarter. unit when we second pleased

X,XXX third the XXX quarter second from in the So, in quarter.

If them. is favorable quarter you things apart start to couple the there's to happening the just that mix, that a are of profitability the were very able there. One we a within that and do pulling deals related within

that was without by reduction in that in time. cost that margin had the that was and pricing a that number significantly improved product Our at accelerated same

So, two lot profitability. those to added more things a

would projects get We I'd the also issues, were legacy we of quarter, We through we profitability excited very through. second came as had some that There get done, them, were installs them our work in but the didn't some older say valuable to that going to done. have completed they forward. we have

to loaded you a our this by at that that we about we're basis; loss installation, it I on a installation, fully a basis. quarter, guys an breakeven So, big a as reduction small change operating on well quarter. as quarter-over-quarter driven both give margin on on the look on But versus product, last

going that our continue about forward, think we of out I cost take product. to you will As know,

down quite to our it continue had expectation high, that the going be but into the come on that you're mix the I is is favorability process. a see not number next that My that deals we forward as been may these installation peek – quarter. benefited it down, a it's to short So, probably mix. And average into get We are drift fourth from take – you can are last the term – to slightly know, not definitely the favorable quarter, can each towards over quarter. move we more over an when in

watermark, it drift think I the don't forward look move it, I see X,XXX at dollars great you'll accomplishment. as on short-term, forward. So, we in a down a I few a but think was as as high it

Michael Weinstein

you same of see but forward, what is, or up the don't like decline So anything it expect you’re to creep won’t you kind saying going that?

Greg Cameron

there. comfortable mean, on the of in our would I really a a you're have X,XXX see job favorable out doing I XX%, what about next yeah. this just mean, Yeah, quarter over I time, on we're product mix should, discipline really you quarter we or price, what quarter. good and versus may look it on talking with I'm coming kind being at right? very following

Michael Weinstein

Right. And is the I replacements do [or cycle per to that for]? servicing to down less think also on you replacement Greg, you costs able that mentioned are expect and side

Greg Cameron

combination. Yeah, a it's

right. and couple written we've the So, improve stack to there's we've happening cell. One things that blog. you And that papers, about on to could the see continued the life are in on improve. that fuel continued it's there, And a just technical within in is

longer doing we've this extra that, economic they to for where it having trades So, few had does. of and team. our quarter put life put we [foot] the more a some about good total And the there's a on what ship output there. is, One think has that optimization out the managing can helps reduced around in did into amount sites. individual field unit We a replacement them

look profitability, you growing as did you margins, a gaining to can this near business forward, see as in it when future. and the revenue also just We well as then way

process of a to through we're So, trying accelerate. that’s that

done see with the driving new and The similar profile you the very cost of other units, with it costs a replacement cost a very product total you place team's out. good see similar where job units, to on

there as need being XXXX as OEM from valuable about So, you crossover and lots you think each and we expected every wants. the see very I is should the is trajectory need and them less to gain of go good business well you forward we a get where cost, and that that we one you think out business that very service profitable, talked point we

Benjamin Kallo

evening. good guys, Hey,

history couple hydrogen you just are project? about about, Greg, about management having change? And or marine there? developed Head new just, are those electrolyzer announcing then the and And from guys Thanks. team you some that anything know, us project of guys And about think, just you if in? product [holes] where Europe, announcements can good the you you need lines talked initially products were of or could you I to you and new talk just the a to You coming know, started have a talk there with when lab

K. R. Sridhar

Yeah, then I'll it asked Ben, history. you Greg on to pass sure. started because get I'll and

were generation my heat, Even a started electrolyzer. hydrogen. So, used work electricity, single the I generation going look, history That's be the very days the this [for as is with electricity, did, early that heat, about, in an of thinking of of our we Mars]. know, to technology particular and and electricity generation company, of company's product you

decarbonization we automotive, And of strong sector. one thought far then forms, is of a that make we same why and coming and place have why that for a other area, other areas is need have world are or is and of some about in way solid generating can has and coming wanting and one, in heat that in putting very this to it a places up way. it's the policy cost it coming Number industrial this matter ubiquitousness you the forms of to two, electricity down. would in it the saying regulation to a in renewable go the the attractive, realizing certain makers and come it enable that use combination, with heart transportation very hydrogen down policymakers number that like intensive the And so of things timing. coming decarbonize rather along carbon know, that, they that market oxide about we you practically it company, are about direction And is and so that. electrochemical from and research, we another regenerative SORFC, only solid I fuel is have doing and patents fuel as spoken we timing? process uniquely, of early hydrogen the can speaking It patents this be in on papers oxide XX the a run So, but is as over device and have very the as cell in that an it the reversible now? electrolyzer the run and It and process a is effectively cell direction not manner, have lot been a of in because called

temperature there This is on that So, academic to electrolyzers. the the purely if oxide far the superior This literature, in look research. you consensus is DOE based electrolyzer technology, is low solid is research.

just just not look It's research. can that. You at company

important we terms in play rolling the economy I'll it that also will product, hydrogen of a our know, and you. international out feel very you contributing addressing pass is right. and in first, So, the we development, market first Greg, confident to And transformation timing on the

Greg Cameron

R. K. Yeah, thanks,

time are only roadmap. was around resiliency, when looking that applicability its what not had first I know, its excited what pillars the five company the we with. product today, to you you that attracted Bloom, was So, and we me the at team and started know, internally, call spent the growing with We got technology them but I company really I about that

about with a So, some whether forms fuel electrolyzer. gas, be of it's the the think be carbon make unique talked of fuel is can part that I solid exciting and attractive. really really do we've our fuel cell that capture a processing there. cell, ability server play, cell just And it oxide of to that bio our Marine, hydrogen which the both then opportunity and or

now that things, We place that. can up engineers make do server process of set investment We’ve an the you may opportunity market sheet, commercialize the go into I to or have feel we to pillars, these we've a issues, moving play, of marketing go our of XX got products. design. have to the and internally, we side making you And leader the sure how are had I doing those sure those got to a needed but without more has into talked do to do as short-term about product other they is management process a we've the have the that what platform. that fortified ago. taking come with Sharelynn before, operating came Moore of think not really we we nice invest all with through only putting the of some has and know, months care of thing requiring in It do the than great lot it a the in lot flexibility X background, balance

from until see So, it revenue at to it's for all time be out there products. feels glad current company. expanding same the nicely the particular the like we're everything some together know time at these that we I'm major same time but items, quite is coming contributions the It'll

it'll So, think help. I

the about and lot asked their there's before. operating team. here of cost real at That You impressed But also I team talked about good operations, a sounds Bloom product management the with the rigor.

the as think team going around the forward. I conversations leadership the board with

is exists that's a what you're For it's a million bringing see And it they've seeing people around the me, do And to from really the organizations. that whether company that have size you different do take you been grow? $XXX how it's you And as hopefully that to to need quarter how that scalability. that scalable, grow the in. on and in take leaders a complexity we're business It's joined, so and make backgrounds it grows it it the that operationalize you'll simpler. way a in

is as what We but need. working really come leadership making we the power scale haven’t organizations that we're we from come team, the all resilient all background, which sure from can a power teams together – building in and

a different be now wake may and that parts in come to not in from time get of person and or to of them ways. in this about to I world different background, zone we're last lead, have you our business the our the see international to add and think California. with not able desks when on think excited see can we the play lot just here you're Europe, really up it's going And in in a homes

team an and have like we're So, company. feel are like here. I'm as really as about And team pulling the inflection we in a I feel a together really excited I we point. nicely
