Loop is the product of 20 years of research and collaboration among the most creative, determined minds in science, engineering, clean tech and the automotive industry.

Clean and tough.

How we define energy innovation: It must perform (meet or exceed other technologies). It must be tough (reduce operating and maintenance costs). It must be viable (an easy, cost-competitive alternative to fossil fuels). It has to be clean (zero emissions).

Patented, peer-tested and industry applauded, Loop’s eFlow® technology is the first to create uniform current density, solving one of the most challenging issues in hydrogen energy development – and offering a new vision for heavy transport.

Targeting short- and regional-haul freight markets as a replacement for fossil-fuel powertrains, Loop’s tough, zero-emission hydrogen/EV engine creates consistent peak power, improved performance, and a competitive total cost of ownership, without subsidies.

In sum: a clean, tough, high performance, cost-cutting, commercially competitive diesel-replacing power source that’s lab-tested, validated and ready to go.

More simply put: a total game-changer.
