Our patent ensures that we’re able to deliver a commercially-viable product for our global customer base. The key MARS patented innovation is the use of alternators connected to disc brakes in the trailer, sending power through a converter to a battery storage unit for on-demand energy, all within the reefer trailer. The company now has four patents pending in Germany, Japan, China, and South Korea. The invention, under research and development for five years, now goes into a prototype in the US, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. We believe our intellectual property provides us with a material sustainable competitive advantage for the next 20 years.
Today, the transportation sector is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States and medium- and heavy-duty vehicles account for a disproportionate share of the emissions. This fleet also represents an enormous untapped source of clean energy.
Consider that if MARS technology were installed in 10,000-100,000 trailers out of a 7 million to 8 million trailer universe with four alternators in each trailer, our projections show that within ten years we could become one of the world’s largest power companies. Currently, there are roughly 2 million trucks in North America alone capable of utilizing MARS technology to create and store valuable energy.
Our Proof of Concept evaluation phase is currently underway. We’re eager to share the results, which will allow us to better predict the efficiency of the MARS technology and its potential for generating energy, expanding driving ranges and expanding efficiencies.
Ecolution KWH developed the Module Active Response System (MARS). The technology is a combination of our global patents, both issued and pending, and customized components to create the MARS Trailer. The MARS Trailer attaches to a heavy-duty vehicle, generating and storing energy as the vehicle moves – energy which can be used for a variety of uses. Simply put, the MARS Trailer is a mobile kinetic power plant, supplying on-demand energy that is sustainable, environmentally friendly, affordable and reliable. Our trailers and rail cars can store between 2.5 – 5 megawatts of power.
The MARS Trailer can provide energy to anything that plugs into it. Any truck of any type (including diesel and hydrogen) can partner with the MARS Trailer and be engineered to become a traveling source of power. For example, a hydrogen truck hauling a MARS Trailer can generate energy which can be used to power its refrigeration unit or any electrical component — mobile or stationary. The energy is most efficiently generated during deceleration.
