GE announces $13 million research partnership

Posted on October 25, 2006

GE Global Research will take part in a $13 million research partnership with the Federal Transit Administration, Ballard Power Systems and A123 Systems to co-develop a zero emissions, battery-dominant hybrid fuel cell bus. Researchers say that the cost-efficient, fuel cell bus will emit zero emissions and be capable of traveling up to 200 miles with accessories operating. GE claims that the technologies developed for this project may have other clean energy applications, such as uninterruptible power supplies and renewable energy production. Approximately $6.5 million of the funding will come from the FTA’s hydrogen fuel cell bus research and development program, with GE contributing the additional $6.5 million.
