Army Tests Fuel Cells with General Motors
The US Army is testing hydrogen fuel cell technology with General Motors at the Army’s Ground System Power and Energy Laboratory (GSPEL) in Detroit, which opened last year.
GSPEL’s high-tech facilities offer a venue to develop new dual-use power systems to benefit both the military and industry. Cooperative agreements such as the one with GM will assist in accelerating technologies critical to the Army’s future ground vehicle platforms. The Army wants to reduce its fuel needs in battlefield situations.
In November, the Federal Times reported the Army has had to cut about $250 million in energy efficiency projects in fiscal 2013 due to budget cuts.
