GM Deploys Green Technology

June 17, 2007
GM built the world’s first electric car and although this experiment did not go as well as the company would have liked, the Detroit-based auto maker has not given up on green technology investments and research.
In fact, General Motors Corp. is moving more than 500 fuel cell experts from advanced development laboratories to core engineering functions to prepare fuel cell technology for future production.
More than 400 fuel cell engineers will report to GM’s Powertrain Group to begin production engineering of fuel cell systems. Another 100 will transfer to GM’s Global Product Development organization to start integrating fuel cells into future company vehicles. Finally, more than 150 fuel cell scientists and program support will remain as part of GM’s Research and Development center to continue advanced research in hydrogen storage, fuel cells and program commercialization.
The transition is aimed at expediting the company’s efforts to produce vehicles that displace petroleum through energy diversity.
“Eight years ago we said that hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle technology could make a major contribution to solving the energy and environmental challenges facing the automobile industry,” said Larry Burns, GM Vice President, Research and Development. “Today’s announcement signals another important milestone as we move fuel cell vehicles closer to future production.”
This realignment is yet another initiative in GM’s commitment to displace petroleum usage in the auto industry through a range of propulsion alternatives, including:
