Cummins has bundled its range of zero emissions products and services to create Accelera by Cummins, a new brand for its New Power business unit. 


This launch is a significant step forward in Cummins’ efforts to achieve its Destination Zero strategy. The strategy is focused on evolving Cummins technologies to reach zero emissions across its product portfolio. The company has invested more than $1.5 billion in research and technology, capital, and acquisitions to build Accelera’s leadership and technological capabilities over the past several years. As a result, Accelera is now a global leader in zero-emissions technologies, providing battery electric and fuel cell electric solutions with hundreds of electrolyzers generating hydrogen around the world today.

Jennifer Rumsey, Cummins President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Achieving our goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 requires leveraging our entire portfolio of businesses. Establishing Accelera reinforces our commitment to leading in zero-emissions solutions and highlights our unmatched ability to leverage our deep understanding of our customers’ needs and applications, technical expertise, and extensive service and support network to walk hand in hand with our customers throughout the energy transition.”

Amy Davis, who has led the New Power business unit since 2020, will serve as President of Accelera. “The purpose of Accelera is simple – to secure a sustainable future for the industries that keep the world running,” said Amy Davis, President of Accelera. “Launching this new brand drives additional focus in our business and enables us to stay ahead of the ever-changing zero-emissions landscape. By leveraging Cummins’ deep understanding of our customers’ needs and the demands of their applications, Accelera will deliver leading zero-emissions technologies necessary to accelerate the shift to zero.”

In addition to the launch, Accelera is announcing zero-emissions projects such as the Varennes Caron Recycling project, where it will supply a 90-megawatt proton exchange membrane electrolyzer system for Varennes Carbon Recycling’s plant in Quebec, Canada. It will also accelerate the production of 1000 electric school buses with Blue Bird across the United States over the next 12-18 months.

Cummins’ breakthrough technologies have reduced the company’s product emissions by more than 90% over the past 25 years, and Accelera will continue to advance the company’s path toward a zero-emissions future. Accelera will continue to build on recent zero-emissions highlights such as completing the acquisition of Meritor, Inc. and Siemens Commercial Vehicle business to advance electric powertrain solutions, increasing global electrolyzer manufacturing capacity with gigawatt-scalable plants, powering the world’s largest proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer in operation in the world, and powering refuse trucks with FAUN across Europe.
