GE and Ford collaborate on alternative fuel technology

The two companies will also collaborate with researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology on data collection and analysis on GE's fleet in order to add even greater efficiencies to electric driving and charging.


"Understanding driving and charging habits is key to advancing vehicle and charging infrastructure," says Professor Bert Bras of the Sustainable Design & Manufacturing laboratory at Georgia Tech. "Through access to vehicle data, we can accelerate research and development of new technologies to further improve efficiency, driver satisfaction and environmental benefits."

Study findings will be shared with commercial customers to provide insights and help facilitate the deployment of electric vehicles in their own fleets amid a growing EV infrastructure that now includes more than 10,000 public charging stations across the country.
