  • WAVE

    Type: 
    Product

    Battery operated electric buses offer a cleaner, quieter ride and can save transit authorities huge sums of money over their lifetime. However, they suffer from the same drawbacks as all EVs i.e. limited range and high up-front cost. Integrating enroute charging into an electrified bus route can address both of these challenges. The ability to partially charge at a short stop along the route increases the effective range of a bus, and/or allows the battery pack to be smaller, saving on the purchase price of each vehicle.

  • EV ARC

    Type: 
    Product

    Envision Solar’s patented EV ARC  is the world’s only transportable, solar powered EV charging station. Delivered to your location complete and ready to charge cars, it does not require any permits, civil engineering or planning, foundations, trenching or electrical connections. Each EV ARC will deliver up to 225 e miles daily, while charging up to six EVs at a time. Equipped with on-board battery storage, it will charge EVs day or night and during a black out or other grid failure, you can use the energy produced by the EV ARC to keep your business up and running.

  • Hyperloop one

    Type: 
    Product

    Hyperloop is a new mode of transportation that moves freight, people quickly, safely, on-demand, and direct from origin to destination. Passengers or cargo are loaded into the Hyperloop vehicle and accelerate gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube. The vehicle floats above the track using magnetic levitation and glides at airline speeds for long distances due to ultra-low aerodynamic drag. Hyperloop One systems will be built on columns or tunnelled below ground to avoid dangerous grade crossings and wildlife.

  • Bcycle

    Type: 
    Product

    BCycle is a bike share system that is revolutionizing the way people use public transportation. Bike share is a unique solution to the environmental, health, and transportation infrastructure challenges that face modern communities. BCycle partners with campuses, corporations, and municipalities of all sizes to implement and maintain bike share systems that complement and improve existing transportation infrastructure. 

    BCycle has created a web platform where you can get information on various bike sharing companies in different cities of US.  

  • Nuvve bi directional charger

    Type: 
    Product

    EV chargers are classified as per the speed of charging (slow, fast and rapid) and the whether they provide AC or DC current as an output. However, in general all these chargers are designed to take electricity from grid and not vice versa. If EVs have to also supply electricity back to the grid as is required for Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) applications then we need bi-directional chargers.

  • Solstice® N40 (R-448A)

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology: 

    Zeotropic blend designed to serve as a replacement for R-404A in supermarket refrigeration retrofits or new systems.

    Excellent low-GWP, highly energy efficient and non-flammable refrigerant for low and medium temperature in commercial refrigeration: supermarket systems, vending machines (plug-ins) and other applications.

  • GoSun Go

    Type: 
    Product

    Today around 3 billion people cook with dirty fuel sources; such as wood, dung or charcoal. As a result, smoke inhalation related illness ranks with malaria and AIDs as one of the great greatest problems facing the world. In addition, fuel wood scarcity drives families around the world to spend many hours collecting and transporting heavy loads of fuel wood, often to the detriment of already endangered ecosystems. If fire wood is purchased it often makes a sizeable portion of the family's income.
