Dear Shareholder, During our second fiscal quarter, which ended June 30, 2019, Bloom Energy continued to deliver strong same quarter year-over-year acceptance and revenue growth, characterized by a diversity of customers, industries and international business. We also continued to proliferate our relationships with customer financing partners, expanded our ability to provide zero carbon baseload power generation solutions, as well as added a seasoned sales executive to lead our outbound sales efforts. This quarter, we achieved 271 acceptances, a 49.7% year-over-year increase and a record Q2 for the company, and slightly above the midpoint of our estimates. Revenue for the quarter was $233.8 million, up 38.4% year-over-year, yielding a net loss of $62.2 million (including $51.2 million of stock- based compensation) and adjusted EBITDA of $21.9 million. Q2 Fiscal 2019 Business Highlights Data Center and Health Care Lead Sectors with Strongest Acceptance Momentum We delivered another strong quarter with a diversity of acceptances across industry sectors and international markets. Our momentum in core health care, retail and data center sectors continued, and we saw new acceptances in the tech, telecommunications, utility, food and beverage, media, hospitality and education sectors. Notable new customers of Bloom Energy Servers this quarter include Bloom Energy Servers were deployed at The Agilent Technologies, the global leader in life sciences, diagnostics, and applied chemical markets, and Altice USA, one of the largest Alhambra, a mixed-use health-and-wellness broadband communications and video services operators in the U.S. community in Los Angeles during Q2 We also deployed the latest generation of our Energy Servers at The Alhambra, a LEED Gold certified, mixed-use health-and-wellness- focused community that is home to the County of Los Angeles. New Strategic Alliance with Duke Energy Underscores Confidence in Bloom Energy Servers This quarter, we were pleased to announce a subsidiary of Duke Energy, one of the largest electric power holding companies in the U.S., made a $250 million investment in our technology. Duke Energy One will acquire approximately 37 megawatts of Bloom Energy Server projects through a power purchase agreement 3


 
mechanism as it seeks to serve commercial and industrial customers’ evolving energy needs behind the meter. Duke recognizes that commercial and industrial customers increasingly need power that is reliable, resilient and affordable, and its investment is a significant validation of the Bloom Energy Server value proposition. Duke Energy One has already secured long-term power purchase agreements with creditworthy customers primarily located in California, Connecticut, Maryland and New York. Duke and Bloom Energy will deploy the servers at more than 30 sites across a portfolio of customers during the next 18 months, including hospitals, technology companies, data centers and universities. Bloom Energy Continues on Path to Zero Emissions with New Capability to Run on Hydrogen During the quarter, we announced a new capability for Bloom Energy Servers to operate using pure hydrogen, or a blend of hydrogen and natural gas, as fuel. The announcement sets up a symbiotic relationship between wind and solar power, and fuel cells powered by hydrogen produced with excess renewables. Today, excess renewable power is typically curtailed. This impacts project economics, and makes new wind and solar deployments less attractive to investors. Instead of curtailing wind and solar power, excess renewables can be used to produce hydrogen from water via electrolysis. Renewable Bloom Energy announced the capability to hydrogen can be stored indefinitely where it is produced, or in large use hydrogen as fuel in Q2, a solution that storage and pipeline networks like the natural gas system. Bloom Energy Servers can use the hydrogen to deliver baseload electric could complement wind and solar power power 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, providing the perfect deployments. always-on companion to intermittent wind and solar power. More than 200 water electrolysis projects have come online since 2000 with many more larger electrolysis projects announced in the US and Europe. Bloom Energy anticipates early demand for hydrogen- powered fuel cells in Asia, where hydrogen production and utilization are being most actively developed. Global Energy Leaders Convene at 5th Annual ASPIRE Forum Hosted by Bloom Energy In May, more than 300 executive, political, industry and regulatory leaders gathered in California for the ASPIRE Forum, an energy and sustainability thought leadership event convened by Bloom Energy and Morgan Stanley. We created the ASPIRE Forum to facilitate intelligent dialogues about the solutions, practices and policies 4


 
required to comprehensively address the causes and consequences of climate change. This year’s event, our fifth, featured keynote speakers including Laszlo Varro, Chief Economist of the International Energy Agency, Neil Chatterjee, Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Charlie Baker, Governor of Massachusetts, Stacey Cunningham, President of the New York Stock Exchange and California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis. FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee and ASPIRE Forum is a key moment in our marketing calendar and we were delighted to welcome many customers and many potential IEA Chief Economist Laszlo Varro at ASPIRE future customers to the event. Forum 2019 with Fareed Zakaria of CNN. New Global Sales Leader Appointment Further Strengthens Leadership Team Finally, we are pleased to report another high caliber executive appointment. Chris White has joined Bloom Energy as executive vice president and chief sales officer. Chris has more than 25 years experience leading industry and market transformations. He most recently served as CEO of the Americas at Signify (formerly Philips Lighting). Before joining Signify, Chris had an impressive 20-year tenure at Cisco.

We are tremendously grateful for all that he contributed to our company over the past 14 years! . 5


 
Q2 Fiscal 2019 Financial Highlights Q2’19 Q1’19 Q2’18 Acceptances (100 kW) 271 235 181 Revenue ($M) $233.8 $200.7 $168.9 GAAP Gross Margin (%) 17.8% 7.8% 19.4% Gross Margin Excluding SBC (%) 22.3% 15.0% 20.6% GAAP Net Loss ($M) ($62.2) ($84.4) ($45.7) Adjusted EBITDA ($M) $21.9 $2.1 $12.5 GAAP Net Loss per Share ($) ($0.55) ($0.76) ($4.34) Adjusted Net Loss per Share ($) ($0.13) ($0.22) ($0.27) Total Acceptances We achieved 271 acceptances in Q2 of FY19, or 27.1 megawatts, a 49.7% increase year-over-year. Generally, an acceptance occurs when the system is turned on and producing full power. For orders where one of our international partners performs the installation, our acceptance criteria is different. Those acceptances are generally achieved when the systems are shipped to our partner. Upon acceptance, the customer order is moved from product backlog and is recognized as revenue. The 271 acceptances represented ten different end customers, across eight industries and two countries. Revenue We achieved $233.8 million of revenue in Q2 of FY19 compared to $168.9 million in Q2 of FY18, an increase of 38.4% year-over-year and up 16.5% sequentially relative to Q1 of FY19. Note that relative to our Q2 of FY19 estimates that we provided last quarter, there was a change related to the PPA II upgrade project that we announced during the quarter. Our Q2 of FY19 estimates netted certain expenses associated with the upgrade against the proceeds received. The Q2 of FY19 actual results recognize incremental revenue and expenses on our profit and loss statement. So that you can understand the impact of the difference between our Bloom Energy Servers deployed at a Q2 of FY19 stimates and our Q2 of FY19 actual results, we have California manufacturer provided a table in the “Summary Non-GAAP Financial Information” section on page 10 of this letter. This table bridges our actual results to a normalized or “adjusted actuals” that aligns with the methodology of the estimates that we provided last quarter. On an adjusted actuals basis, removing the impact of the $40.6 million of revenue associated with the difference as outlined on page 10, we achieved $193.2 million of revenue, which is an increase of 6


 
14.4% year-over-year, but down 3.8% sequentially due to a mix of lower ASPs associated with our international acceptances, where we don’t achieve installation revenue and from the PPA II upgrade, where we achieved minimal installation revenue. Gross Profit and Gross Margin Gross profit was $41.7 million in Q2 of FY19, yielding a gross margin of 17.8% compared to $32.8 million in Q2 of FY18, with a gross margin of 19.4%. While absolute gross profit increased on higher acceptance volume, gross margin declined primarily driven by an increase in stock based compensation related to shares issued in conjunction with our IPO in July of FY18. Excluding stock-based compensation, gross profit for Q2 of FY19 was $52.1 million, which represented gross margin of 22.3%. Gross margin was up sequentially by 7.3 percentage points relative to Q1 of FY19, generally driven by a 15.3% increase in volume, as well as typical quarter-to-quarter mix of profitability in acceptances. Compared to Q2 of FY18 and removing stock based compensation, gross profit was up by $17.3 million, and gross margin was up by 1.7 percentage points. Both metrics were driven primarily by larger acceptance volumes and changes in mix of acceptances in Q2 of FY19 compared Bloom Energy Servers deployed at utility scale to Q2 of FY18. On an adjusted actuals basis and normalized to how we provided the estimates, non-GAAP gross profit was $45.1 million, up $10.4 million, and gross margin was 23.4%, up by 2.8 percentage points, again driven primarily by larger acceptance volumes and changes in mix of acceptances in Q2 of FY19 compared to Q2 of FY18. Operating Expenses Operating expenses for Q2 of FY19 were $91.8 million, which included an increase in year-over-year stock-based compensation related to our IPO, investments in people and materials to support our next generation Energy Server development, new product application development, investments in our demand generation functions to support increased growth and investments in G&A to support public company readiness. Additionally, we incurred a one-time expense associated with the PPA II upgrade. Excluding stock-based compensation, Q2 of FY19 operating expenses were $51.0 million, which were up $12.1 million sequentially from Q1 of FY19 and increased $18.8 million year-over-year, or 58.4%. Q2 of 7


 
FY19 operating expenses included $5.9 million of one time charges associated with the PPA II upgrade. On an adjusted basis, removing the impact of these one-time charges, operating expenses were up $6.1 million sequentially from Q1 of FY19 and increased $12.8 million year-over-year. As a percent of total revenue, our operating expenses, again excluding stock-based compensation, increased 2.7 percentage points from 19.1% of revenue in Q2 of FY18 to 21.8% of revenue in Q2 of FY19. Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA Net loss for Q2 of FY19 was $62.2 million. The results for Q2 of FY19 included $51.2 million of stock-based compensation expenses related to stock grants issued at the time of our IPO. The change from our Q2 of FY19 estimates to the Q2 of FY19 actuals for the PPA II upgrade had no impact to our net loss or EPS. Adjusted EBITDA for Q2 of FY19 was $21.9 million. When compared to Q2 of FY18 adjusted EBITDA, which was $12.5 million, Q2 of FY19’s adjusted EBITDA increased $9.4 million. Adjusting for the change from our Q2 of FY19 estimates for the PPA II upgrade, adjusted EBITDA was $12.8 million. Free Cash Flow Our cash position, including restricted cash, increased sequentially by $1.2 million in Q2 of FY19. We calculate free cash flow as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures. For Q2 of FY19, we achieved free cash flow of $108.9 million. Included in this amount are proceeds that were used to pay down debt and equity with our PPA II upgrade project. 8


 
Estimates Our outlook for key metrics for Q3 of FY19: Q3 FY19 Acceptances (100 kW units) 280 to 310 Average Sales Price (dollars-per-kilowatt) $6,300 to $6,600 Total Installed System Cost (dollars-per-kilowatt) $4,125 to $4,425 This outlook is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties and actual results may differ materially due to a variety of factors, as more clearly outlined in the “Forward-Looking Statements” section of this letter. Summary Q2 was characterized by continued execution of our current business plan of growth and cost reduction, but with an eye toward the future. We announced another world-class strategic financing partner with Duke Energy One. Additionally, we introduced our hydrogen powered fuel cell solution that can become a key part of a zero carbon-based distributed energy solution. Finally, we also delivered financial results in line with expectations. With the tailwinds that we see in the current marketplace and the ever- growing need for reliable, always-on power, we are excited for the rest of FY19, as we continue on our mission to deliver clean, reliable and affordable energy to everyone in the world. Sincerely, KR Sridhar, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Randy Furr, Chief Financial Officer 9

Bloom Energy Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited) (In Thousands) Gross Margin to Gross Margin Excluding Stock Based Compensation Gross margin excluding stock based compensation (SBC) is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered an alternative to gross margin, as determined under GAAP. This measure removes the impact of stock based compensation. We believe that gross margin excluding stock based compensation supplements the GAAP measure and enables us to more effectively evaluate our performance period-over-period. A reconciliation of gross margin excluding stock based compensation to gross margin, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and the computation of gross margin excluding stock based compensation are as follows: Q2’19 Q1’19 Q2’18 Revenue 233,782 200,707 168,881 Gross Profit 41,673 15,755 32,771 Gross Margin % 17.8% 7.8% 19.4% Stock-based compensation (Cost of Revenue) 10,391 14,372 1,971 Gross Profit excluding SBC 52,064 30,127 34,742 Gross Margin excluding SBC % 22.3% 15.0% 20.6% Operating Income to Operating Income Excluding Stock Based Compensation Operating income excluding stock based compensation is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered an alternative to operating income, as determined under GAAP. This measure removes the impact of stock based compensation. We believe that operating income excluding stock based compensation supplement the GAAP measure and enable us to more effectively evaluate our performance period-over-period. A reconciliation of operating income excluding stock based compensation to operating income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and the computation of operating income excluding stock based compensation are as follows: Q2’19 Q1’19 Q2’18 Operating Income (50,120) (72,641) (5,255) Stock-based compensation 51,217 63,882 7,818 Operating Income excluding SBC 1,097 (8,759) 2,563 16


 
Net Loss to Adjusted Net Loss and Computation of Adjusted Net Loss per Share Adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share are supplemental measures of operating performance that do not represent and should not be considered alternatives to net loss and net loss per share, as determined under GAAP. This measure removes the impact of the non-controlling interests associated with our legacy PPA entities, the revaluation of warrants and derivatives, fair market value adjustment for the PPA derivatives, and stock based compensation, all of which are non-cash charges. We believe that adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share supplement GAAP measures and enable us to more effectively evaluate our performance period-over- period. A reconciliation of adjusted net loss to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and the computation of adjusted net loss per share are as follows: Q2’19 Q1’19 Q2’18 Net loss to Common Stockholders (62,216) (84,441) (45,677) Loss for non-controlling interests1 (5,015) (3,832) (4,512) Loss (gain) on warrant & derivatives liabilities2 - - 19,198 Loss (gain) on the Fair Value Adjustments for 1,034 (406) (803) certain PPA derivatives3 Stock-based compensation 51,217 63,882 7,818 Adjusted Net Loss (14,980) (24,797) (23,976) Adjusted net loss per share $ (0.13) $ (0.22) $ (0.27) Pro forma weighted average shares outstanding attributable to common, Basic 114,543 112,751 87,270 and Diluted (thousands)4 1. Represents the profits and losses allocated to the non-controlling interests under the hypothetical liquidation at book value (HLBV) method 2. Represents the adjustments to the fair value of the warrants issued or embedded derivatives associated with the convertible notes 3. Represents the adjustments to the fair value of the derivative forward contract for one PPA entity (our first PPA company), a wholly owned subsidiary 4. Includes adjustments to reflect assumed conversion of redeemable convertible preferred stock and convertible promissory notes Net Loss to Adjusted EBITDA Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered an alternative to operating loss or cash flow from operations, as determined by GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax expense, non-controlling interest, revaluations, stock based compensation and depreciation and amortization expense. We use Adjusted EBITDA to measure the operating performance of our business, excluding specifically identified items that we do not believe directly reflect our core operations and may not be indicative of our recurring operations. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures provided by other companies due to potential differences in methods of calculations. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss is as follows: Q2’19 Q1’19 Q2’18 Net loss to Common Stockholders (62,216) (84,441) (45,677) Loss for non-controlling interests1 (5,015) (3,832) (4,512) Loss (gain) on warrant & derivatives liabilities2 - - 19,198 Loss (gain) on the Fair Value Adjustments for 1,034 (406) (803) certain PPA derivatives3 Stock-based compensation 51,217 63,882 7,818 Depreciation & Amortization 19,752 11,271 10,707 Provision (benefit) for Income Tax 258 208 128 Interest Expense / Other Misc 16,853 15,424 25,608 Adjusted EBITDA 21,883 2,106 12,467 1.

Represents the adjustments to the fair value of the warrants issued or embedded derivatives associated with the convertible notes 3. Represents the adjustments to the fair value of the derivative forward contract for one PPA entity (our first PPA company) 17


 
Safe Harbor Statement / Forward-Looking Statements This letter may be deemed to contain forward-looking statements, which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements regarding our strategies, trends and expected expansion and estimates of future acceptances, Average Sales Price and Total Installed System Costs. Readers are cautioned that these forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual future events or results due to a variety of factors including, but not limited to, our limited operating history, the emerging nature of the distributed generation market, the significant losses we have incurred in the past, the significant upfront costs of our Energy Servers, the risk of manufacturing defects, the accuracy of our estimates regarding the useful life of our Energy Servers, the availability of rebates, tax credits and other tax benefits, our reliance on tax equity financing arrangements, our reliance upon a limited number of customers, our lengthy sales and installation cycle, construction, utility interconnection and other delays and cost overruns related to the installation of our Energy Servers, business and economic conditions and growth trends in commercial and industrial energy markets, global economic conditions and uncertainties in the geopolitical environment; overall electricity generation market and other risks and uncertainties. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee that the future results, performance, or events and circumstances described in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur. Moreover, neither we, nor any other person (including any potential underwriter of our securities), assume responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements for any reason after the date of this presentation to conform these statements to actual results or to changes in our expectations, except as required by law. These forward-looking statements should also be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included elsewhere in our public filings, including under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and subsequent filings with the SEC. These statements were made as of August 12, 2019, and reflect management’s views and expectations at that time. We disclaim any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements in this letter to reflect subsequent events, actual results or changes in our expectations. This letter includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC rules. These non-GAAP financial measures are in addition to, and not a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of these non- GAAP financial measures versus their nearest GAAP equivalents. For example, other companies may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently or may use other measure to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison. We urge you to review the reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures set forth in this letter, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business. 18
