The writing is on the wall and a majority of automakers are reading it clearly. The transition from internal combustion to battery electrics is currently underway but there’s another essential new technology under development. Mobile and fixed power stations are must-haves for new EVs like the GMC Hummer SUV and Cadillac Lyriq, but also for heavy-duty trucks, trains, and aerospace-related equipment. GM intends to be a leader in this realm as well.
The automaker has just announced plans to accelerate its market presence with its new Hydrotec-based mobile and fixed power stations. Aside from EVs, these state-of-the-art generators are intended for worksites, data centers, and even military support. The generators will all be powered by GM’s Generation 2 Hydrotec fuel cell cubes. The goal is for them to replace gas- and diesel-burning power sources.
