Planes, trains, but not automobiles— why GM is developing fuel cells

General Motors has contracted with two companies to develop new uses for Hydrotec, GM’s hydrogen fuel cell system. Wabtec will develop freight locomotives that use Hydrotec. Liebherr-Aerospace will explore applications for hydrogen fuel cell technology in aerospace. GM still sees infrastructure as a significant hurdle standing in the way of implementing hydrogen fuel cells for passenger cars. In their view, creating a global hydrogen fueling network would be a big undertaking with uncertain benefits. Read more via Ars Technica
