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.

Implementation Stories

Electric-Hydrogen Propulsion by GreenGT
Implemented by Migros Geneva in Geneva (Switzerland) in 2023

GreenGT's 40-ton electric and hydrogen-powered truck will begin deliveries in January 2023 in Geneva. Tests have already been taking place on Geneva's roads for several weeks. The truck has already covered 1600 kilometers. This hydrogen truck has the same load capacity as a conventional vehicle. It will be used by Migros Geneva, one of the project partners, to bring goods from the distribution center to the various branches in the canton. The project is the result of a collaboration between the Nomads Foundation and four companies: Migros, the propulsion system designer GreenGT, the Services industriels de Genève (SIG) and the group specialized in trucks LARAG.



The environmental benefits

  • Saves up to 900 tons of CO2 for every truck produced
  • No exhaust gaz from truck operations - no pollutants, CO2 or fine dust particles
  • Reduces noise pollution

The Financial benefits

  • Between 3 to 5 years of time-to-market savings
