WARREN, Mich. - The Army, eager to find more efficient ways of transporting troops and supplies, wants to absorb some of the costs and responsibility for developing fuel-cell vehicles that could one day replace gas-powered cars and trucks.

The National Automotive Center at the Warren-based Army Tank-Automotive Armaments Command is working with the Department of Energy and domestic automakers to place fuel-cell vehicles on military bases.

"Let us work on infrastructure, create hydrogen through some sort of reforming process," said Dennis Wend, NAC executive director.
