Loop electric-powered solutions offer truck and bus OEMs a clean energy solution to replace a powertrain’s internal combustion engine with an electric hydrogen fuel cell range extender that allows vehicles to travel farther, fuel quickly, and carry more payload.

Smaller and lighter than battery systems, Loop range extenders incorporate the most compact, tough, powerful and economically-viable fuel cell power module available today.

Powered by eFlow® technology – a unique design change that removes 30% of the capital cost of traditional fuel cells – each Loop platform offers a significantly lower capital and lifecycle cost versus battery-only solutions.

Loop is bringing economically-viable zero-emissions to urban environments where it is demanded the most. Without any compromises.


Gas to Hydrogen icon

We provide affordable fuel cell power modules for leading truck and bus manufacturers who want to gain an edge and eliminate toxic diesel from urban environments. The benefits of Loop’s scalable fuel cell range extender product line make them ideal for a range of medium-to-heavy duty transportation applications.


Port Drayage, Container Trucks & Vocational Trucks

Helping customers deliver zero-emissions is what we do. Our next-generation engines are engineered to provide productive, efficient and durable performance for short and regional-haul Class 6-8 trucks.

Offering long operating range, quick fill-ups and zero emissions, Loop systems can meet the total cost of ownership demanded by heavy-duty truck operators.

Loop Energy’s hydrogen fuel cell range extenders act as an on-board power generator to charge batteries to support peak power demands while capturing energy derived through regenerative braking. This hybrid solution reduces the size and weight of a pure battery-electric truck to provide extended range, super high-torque for heavy loads, quick fill-ups and emission-free freight movement.

As ports and urban centers mandate emission-free alternatives, future-proof your delivery operations ahead of legislation that will remove diesel-fueled vehicles from port operations and roads.

Transit & School Buses

Tackling greenhouse gas emissions is imperative, especially in urban areas where transit and school buses operate.

Loop is helping cities and transit agencies be stronger and more sustainable by powering bus fleets economically, quietly, and with zero emissions.

Our range extender marries a limited-range battery electric system with the benefits of a fuel cell range extender to provide an extended-range, rapidly-refueled, zero-emission solution.

Bus operators now have a quiet and vibration-free alternative to address the ‘range anxiety’ inherent with pure-battery electric heavy-duty buses, and a zero-emission alternative in contrast to polluting diesel or natural gas engines.

Loop’s fuel cell systems are foremost about performance and offer original equipment manufacturers a range of configurable platform choices for a variety of medium-to- heavy duty buses.
