Summary
GM can't have its business growth capped by energy, safety or environmental issues...We have the opportunity for an all-new automotive DNA based on electric motors and fuel cells." As the vice president of R&D and strategic planning at General Motors, Larry Burns is on a mission to reinvent the automobile using nonpolluting hydrogen fuel cells. He has been a persistent advocate for hydrogen power and believes that the industry can keep making small energy improvements in the cars it currently produces - or it can take a big leap forward to build a whole new kind of car. In this inspiring TEDTalk, Burns previews cool next-gen car design and sleek, customizable (and computer-enhanced) vehicles that run clean on hydrogen while pumping energy back into the electrical grid when they're idle.
