The US Army has decided to show it’s willing to do its part for the environment, by demonstrating advances in fuel cell technology with a purchase of a fleet of such vehicles from General Motors. Each branch of the military is going to switch to the technology, and the first batch was shown yesterday in Hawaii. The island is heavily dependent on fuel imports and this also goes to some way towards reducing it.
Recent reports even state that the army is testing fuel cell technology as an auxiliary power unit which can provide extra electricity for its Abrams tanks.

“Operating these vehicles will provide the military with the necessary data and experience to determine future applications of fuel cell technology,” said Charles Freese, GM executive director of Global Fuel Cell Activities.
