GM spearheads hydrogen-powered truck and infrastructure DOE initiative

General Motors (GM) is aiming to demonstrate “real life applications” of hydrogen fuel cell-powered trucks as part of the US Department of Energy’s SuperTruck 3 programme.

Awarded funding from the DOE, GM will collaborate with Southern Company and Nel ASA to provide a fuel cell prototype truck fleet and develop an integrated hydrogen microgrid for fuelling infrastructure.

The vehicles, built on a similar frame to the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 5500 MD, will be powered by GM’s HYDROTEC fuel cell systems producing more than 300kW of power and an estimated range greater than 300 miles. Southern Company will use the medium duty trucks as shop vehicles at its worksites in the US.

Together with Southern Company and Nel, GM will integrate a fuel cell-based power generator, with Nel providing its advanced PEM electrolyser to generate onsite hydrogen and power GM’s fuel cells.
