Cummins has been awarded a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy for its high power density inverter project, which is intended to spur advancemen­ts in zero-emissions vehicles. Cummins’ project will be focused on the developmen­t of advanced electric-drive components like traction inverters and lithium batteries to improve power density, durability, performanc­e, life span, safety, and affordabil­ity. According to Cummins’ VP of Research and Technology, Wayne Eckerle:

“It’s our mission to help our customers reduce their carbon footprints today, as the transition to zero-emissions accelerate­s globally.” “As producers in early adoption markets, we use our learnings to improve the enabling technology, bring down costs, improve performanc­e, and ultimately incentiviz­e additional markets to transition.”
