GE's Durathon Battery Helps Power Electric Bus
Dec 21, 2012
Researchers at GE Global Research have achieved a first step in reducing the cost of clean fuel, zero emission buses, with a vehicle powered by GE's new Durathon™ battery in tandem with a lithium battery and a hydrogen fuel cell. This promising development of a new energy management system could help accelerate both fuel cell acceptance and electrification of bus fleets, delivery trucks, and other larger, heavy-duty vehicle fleets, enabling clean vehicle technologies. In this video, GE engineer Tim Richter explains how the company's Durathon batteries fit into the on-board energy management system. He also takes us on a drive to see the bus in action.
