Hydrogen fuel-cell technology will get a boost as General Motors teams with the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development & Engineering Center. The immediate objective is testing of materials and designs to be followed by full-scale propulsion systems. "We believe hydrogen [fuel-cell] technology holds tremendous potential to one day help reduce our dependence on petroleum, and we are committed to building on our leadership through the continued development," said Charlie Freese, executive director of global fuel-cell engineering at GM.
