GM’s betting its hydrogen fuel cells will revolutionize electric generators


While some automakers have bet on hydrogen to power up their transition to renewable energy, GM is following another approach: it’s going all in on EVs and it’s using its HYDROTEC fuel cell technology to replace traditional gas or diesel generators. 

On Wednesday, they company announced its plans to introduce three Mobile Power Generators (MPGs), using its HYDROTEC fuel cell power cubes.

In the case of GM, the generators can put out power ranging from 60kW to 600kW, but what exactly will they bring to the table?
