Fuel Cell Commercialization at General Motors

Modern fuel cell systems are capable of powering a broad range of vehicles, from luxury sedans to off-road trucks. The technology can also be adapted to non-automotive applications where hydrogen infrastructure challenges can be addressed with centralized refueling stations. GM is evaluating fuel cell solutions for undersea vehicles, aerospace auxiliary power units, commercial vehicles, and stationary power generation. Successful commercialization requires continued work to progress through rapid learning cycles, reduce material costs, and leverage manufacturing scale economy benefits. The execution of strategic partnerships are a key enabler to this commercialization strategy.
