GE’s Durathon™ Battery Helps Power Electric Bus

GE engineer Tim Richter explains how the company’s Durathon™ batteries fit into the on-board energy management system on a bus at GE’s Global Research Center. This represents the first step in reducing the cost of clean fuel, zero emission buses, with a vehicle powered by GE’s new Durathon battery in tandem with a lithium battery and a hydrogen fuel cell. This promising development of a new energy management system could help accelerate both fuel cell acceptance and electrification of bus fleets, delivery trucks and other larger, heavy-duty vehicle fleets enabling clean vehicle technologies.
