Electric-Hydrogen Propulsion - From fossil fuel engines to high power electric propulsion systems based on hydrogen

Green GT high-power propulsion solutions can help original equipment manufacturers to deliver market-ready, hydrogen-powered, heavy-duty vehicles, without investing massive amounts of time and money in Research & Development.

While manufacturers are required to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from new trucks by an average of 15% from 2025 onwards, the development and deployment of these new vehicles are very slow. Addressing this challenge, GreenGT aims at accelerating this transition. The hydrogen propulsion system makes it possible to use local energy supply, as hydrogen can be produced on-site. In accordance with eco-regulations, it doesn't generate any sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides or carbon dioxide emissions and reduces engine noise. Combining power, autonomy and fast refuelling time, hydrogen fuel cell trucks are a promising solution to meet the dual challenge of climate change and air pollution.
