Robert Hebner, Michael Lewis and other researchers in UT Austin’s Center for Electromechanics within the Cockrell School of Engineering are closing in on the construction of a clean, hydrogen-powered delivery van for UPS. The vehicle promises greater commercial viability and performance at least as good as traditional gasoline-fueled engines, all without harmful tailpipe emissions. The delivery vehicle will be the first of 16 UPS vans retrofitted with hybrid hydro-fuel cells, which will be tested at distribution facilities across California.
