Fuel-cell competition heats up as rivals target heavy-duty mobility

Diesel engine supplier Cummins emerges as significant competitor with target of $400mn electrolyser sales by 2025

Ballard Power Systems has long been the leading global supplier of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel-cell technology for manufacturers of buses, trucks, trains and ships.
