Cummins Zero-Emission Solutions: Accelerating Decarbonization for Fleets
Accelera by Cummins is creating a range of zero-emissions solutions, including hydrogen fuel cells, batteries, e-axles, traction systems, and electrolyzers, to power fleets and other industries across the world. With over 100 years of experience in engine and technology development, Cummins has invested more than $1.5 billion in research, technology, and acquisitions to become a leader in decarbonization for fleets.
Introducing Accelera by Cummins: A New Power Business Unit
Cummins launched Accelera by Cummins as a rebranding of its “New Power” business unit that includes various zero-emissions solutions for trucking and other industries. “Cummins is going to be a leader in this decarbonization for fleets,” said Amy Davis, Accelera president. “We are going to help them through it.”
Aiming for Net-Zero Emissions by 2050
Cummins has unveiled fuel-agnostic engines designed to keep up with the low and zero-emission movements in all segments of trucking and transportation. The Tier 1 commercial vehicle supplier’s “Destination Zero” strategy, launched earlier this decade, is spending billions of dollars to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

Accelera’s Range of Zero-Emission Solutions
Accelera is advancing a range of zero-emissions solutions, including hydrogen fuel cells, batteries, e-axles, traction systems, and electrolyzers, to power industries from commercial transportation to chemical production. Accelera plans to decarbonize applications like trucks, buses, trains, construction equipment, stationary power, and other carbon-intense industrial processes as a components supplier and integrator.
Standing Out in the Commercial Vehicle Industry
Unlike some of the newer entrants into the commercial vehicle industry, which focus on just one zero-emission energy source, Cummins has the power to refine and develop all kinds of zero-emission technology. “We’re doing so many things,” Davis said of the Accelera side of the business and its new branding. “Let’s shine a spotlight on these zero things.”
Expanding Through Acquisitions
After six acquisitions of businesses in the alternative-fuel spaces, it’s essential to give Accelera its own identity. The most recent major zero emission acquisitions included Meritor and Siemens’ commercial vehicle electric drive business.
The Importance of a Broad Portfolio
“Achieving our goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 requires leveraging our entire portfolio of businesses,” said Jennifer Rumsey, Cummins president and chief executive. “As we have continued to lead in and advance the engine-based solutions that power our customers’ businesses, we have also built the broadest combination of zero-emissions technologies dedicated to the commercial vehicle industry, like battery-electric and fuel cell-electric powertrain solutions and electrolyzers for green hydrogen production.”
Walking Hand in Hand with Customers Through the Energy Transition
Establishing Accelera reinforces Cummins’ commitment to leading in zero-emissions solutions and highlights their unmatched ability to leverage their deep understanding of their customers’ needs and applications, technical expertise, and extensive service and support network to walk hand in hand with their customers throughout the energy transition.
Cummins’ Track Record in Emission Reduction
Cummins reports that its technologies have reduced the company’s product emissions by more than 90 percent over the past 25 years. Accelera will continue the parent company’s mission to advance its path toward a zero-emissions future, company officials said.
Accelera’s Impact on the Commercial Vehicle Market
With a projected $350 to $400 million in revenue for Accelera, Cummins has a significant impact on the commercial vehicle market. By offering a comprehensive range of zero-emission solutions, they are setting themselves apart from competitors who only focus on a single technology, such as fuel cells or batteries.
The Future of Zero-Emission Technologies
As the demand for environmentally friendly transportation and industrial solutions continues to grow, Cummins’ Accelera is well-positioned to be at the forefront of the decarbonization movement. Their dedication to innovation, customer support, and sustainability will likely play a vital role in shaping the future of the commercial vehicle industry and beyond.
In conclusion, Cummins’ zero-emission solutions through Accelera are accelerating decarbonization for fleets and various industries worldwide. Their commitment to innovation and broad portfolio of technologies ensures that they will remain a leader in the commercial vehicle industry as the world transitions toward a greener, more sustainable future.
