eNow Unveils 53-foot Trailer with 100% Electric Solar-Based Refrigeration System at ACT Expo 2018

eNow Unveils 53-foot Trailer with 100% Electric Solar-Based Refrigeration System at ACT Expo 2018

No better place to unveil a disruptive new green technology than at the ACT Expo 2018 (Advanced Clean Transportation) in Long Beach, California. eNow has clearly done so with its All-Electric Solar-Based Refrigeration System deployed on a 53-foot trailer. The eNow “reefer” trailer integrates its proprietary, solar technology, battery storage, and its patented electronic control system.

eNow has focused on the transportation industry since its 2011 founding. It also builds solar-based power systems for in-cab HVAC and hotel loads, liftgate battery systems, and telematics that require an energy source to ensure auxiliary batteries are always charged.

eNow Powers Zero-Emissions Refrigerated Truck

eNow Powers Zero-Emissions Refrigerated Truck

eNow proved the effectiveness of its solar energy-producing systems for transportation by powering the first zero-emissions commercial-use Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU) on a truck making deliveries in an urban environment.

The new zero-emissions TRU branded “Rayfrigeration,” has been undergoing real-world testing since April 2017 in California’s San Joaquin Valley. In five months of testing, emission reductions of 98% nitrous oxide, 86% carbon dioxide, and 97% particulate matter were achieved.

7 + 3 = 10

7 + 3 = 10

In talking with the drivers and fleets present at Sunday’s event, it was clear to me that all 7 of the trucking teams have 3 things in common. So, there you have it: 7 + 3 = 10 [7 fleets] + [3 best practices] = 10 mpg. Saving fuel is really as easy as 1, 2, 3, and the Run on Less fleets have given us the blueprint.
What was the coolest technology you saw at the event?
If I have to choose one, I’ll go with Mesilla Valley Transport’s air conditioning system, which is powered by solar panels on the roof of the tractor and trailer!

Ask The Thought Leaders: What’s The Future Of Green Tech?

Ask The Thought Leaders: What’s The Future Of Green Tech?

Up until last year, it seemed the future of green tech was… inevitability, and a total replacement of less efficient technologies. However, with the recent change in the political landscape in the US, it would seem that advancements in green tech will be somewhat stalled, at least for the next few years.

However, although 2016 was the first year to see a decline in clean energy investments, Green Tech Media tells us not to panic just yet, things are still moving in a positive direction. -And they’re right. Green tech in the automotive industry gets better every year and we’re seeing a global push to decarbonize industry altogether.

For more on that, we asked a group of industry experts… (Click here to read full article on Future of Everything)

eNow Announces Wireless Monitoring for Its Solar-Based Solutions for Commercial Transportation

eNow Announces Wireless Monitoring for Its Solar-Based Solutions for Commercial Transportation

eNow announced the availability of its Wireless Monitoring System for commercial transportation. The primary purpose of the system is to provide commercial vehicles with a state of charge (SOC) and state of health of the batteries. A key advantage of eNow’s solution is that it looks at both the source and usage of power, enabling one to understand the power balance between all inputs and outputs. As such it is both a battery and power management system, with the ability to also monitor air conditioning, hotel loads, and liftgate usage. It can be easily accessed via smartphone, PC, Mac, or tablet. (Click here to read full article on worktruckshow.com)
