Just like uni­ver­si­ty cam­pus­es with tech­nol­o­gy research cen­ters, fleet man­age­ment com­pa­nies are pro­vid­ing excel­lent test­ing grounds now for alter­na­tive tech­nolo­gies. GE Cap­i­tal Fleet Ser­vices has opened its Vehi­cle Inno­va­tion Cen­ter at its Eden Prairie, Minn., head­quar­ters. The cen­ter fea­tures a pri­vate half-mile dri­ving course and a vehi­cle cen­ter that includes alter­na­tive fuel vehi­cles from 20 auto­mo­tive man­u­fac­tur­ers. With 6,000 square feet of class­rooms and show­rooms, the cen­ter also allows vis­i­tors access to a vari­ety of prod­ucts and solu­tions from GE’s eco­mag­i­na­tion port­fo­lio, includ­ing solu­tions for the smart grid, EV charg­ing sta­tions, Com­pressed Nat­ur­al Gas (CNG) in a Box, fuel sav­ings mobile appli­ca­tions, and oth­er advanced ener­gy and infra­struc­ture tech­nolo­gies.

The first-of-its-kind cen­ter rein­forces GE’s com­mit­ment to the deploy­ment of more effi­cient vehi­cles in its fleet and in cus­tomer fleets. Show­cas­ing the lat­est in a grow­ing array of alter­na­tive fuel vehi­cles in elec­tric, nat­ur­al gas, propane, hydro­gen and oth­er for­mats, the cen­ter gives GE’s com­mer­cial cus­tomers the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn about and test dri­ve numer­ous alter­na­tive fuel cars and trucks in a sin­gle loca­tion with assis­tance from GE’s fleet, trans­porta­tion, ener­gy and advanced tech­nol­o­gy experts.
