IT'S THE BASIC BUILDING BLOCK OF THE UNIVERSE.

And today, hydrogen is an essential element of any power portfolio.

BIG BREAKTHROUGH. SMALL FOOTPRINT.

The next big thing in clean energy offers absolute purity with no sacrifice in power, no decline in performance, and absolutely no emissions.

Fuel cells generate electricity through a chemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrogen gas is passed through a fuel cell stack, where the pure hydrogen mixes with atmospheric oxygen to generate electricity, which is used to create electric power.

Cummins is investing in two primary types of fuel cells, Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) and Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC), as well as hydrogen production technologies in order to provide a seamless start-to-finish solution to customers.

PURE PERFORMANCE

Think of hydrogen as a battery itself - a clean energy storage mechanism, but with all the practicalities of a traditional fuel source, like diesel. Along with its unique properties come distinct benefits.

ZERO CO₂ EMISSIONS

At the point of use, hydrogen produces no carbon dioxide—a critical achievement as jurisdictions shift to zero-emission vehicles.

MAJOR RANGE, MINUS THE WEIGHT

Due to their high energy density, fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) can go the distance while carrying less weight associated with fuel.

RAPID REFUELING TIMES

Filling up an FCEV takes about as much time as topping off a typical fossil fuel-powered car or truck, making it ideal for high-utilization vehicles.

REDUCED INFRASTRUCTURE COST

Because they don’t require fast-charging stations, FCEVs eliminate the need for significant power connections and local energy storage.

LESS RELIANCE ON RAW MATERIALS

As fuel cell technology advances, dependency on raw materials continues to decrease, helping to reduce or diversify baseline requirements.

PURE POWER

Right now, fuel cells are powering data centers, communication networks, retail sites, and municipal facilities across the world. And in terms of transportation, its practical applications are practically limitless.

PURE POTENTIAL

According to the Hydrogen Council, by 2030, more than 350,000 hydrogen trucks could be transporting goods, and 50,000 hydrogen buses, thousands of trains and passenger ships could be transporting people without carbon and local emissions.

Toward 2050, the Hydrogen Council's vision also includes hydrogen as a feedstock for renewable fuels for freight shipping.

OUR HISTORY WITH HYDROGEN

Cummins fuel cell technology is road-tested and ready for the marketplace.
Where we are today is rooted in 20 years of research, development, and strategic partnerships.

2003
2014
2017
2018
2019

2003

Cummins develops an SOFC system for the Department of Energy, demonstrating its ability to meet truck auxiliary power unit requirements.

2014

Cummins joins a pilot project to explore the development of what would become the first hydrogen-fueled transportation system in Costa Rica.

2017

Cummins and Microsoft announce the opening of the Advanced Energy Lab, which evaluates SOFC as a power source for future data centers.

2018

Cummins joins the Hydrogen Council, a global coalition exploring and promoting hydrogen as a clean energy source in the face of climate challenges.

2019

Cummins acquires GE's SOFC assets, to expand its capabilities in stationary power options with a variety of low-carbon and renewable fuels. That same year, Cummins acquires Hydrogenics, an innovator of PEM fuel cells and hydrogen production technologies.

THE POWER OF CHOICE

Hydrogen fuel cell power marks the latest entry into our portfolio of power solutions.
