Green LAVA hosts a panel discussion on Bringing Cleantech to Market
Three start-ups with innovative engine, combustion and ignition technology
are finding success not only with their technology but with using partners to
accelerate their development. GoTek
Energy, Green Tech Motors, Transient Plasma Systems talk about their business
models, technology and the need for cooperation with partners and investors.
sharing their knowledge, experience and best practices for getting the most
from their professional relationships.
Motors is a breakthrough energy company converting aerospace innovation
and engineering technology into super efficient AC/DC commercial,
scalable electric motors and generator systems. After extensive vetting,
proposals and negotiations, The Boeing Company licensed the LAGER
(Large Air Gap Electric Ring) Intellectual Property (IP) to GreenTech
Motors. The LAGER motor/generator technology has the capability to
radically change the design, manufacturing, materials, and performance
metrics providing GTM with considerable competitive advantage over
present iron- cored motors available today. Founder and CEO Ron Pretlac
will provide his expertise and experience.
Dan Singleton of Transient Plasma Systems will provide his observations
and dealings with partnerships as he brings products to market based on
technology developed as a PhD candidate at USC. Among a variety of
uses, transient plasma is attractive as a technology for the ignition in
a variety of engines because when compared to traditional thermal
ignition (spark ignition system) it results in reductions in ignition
delay and has been shown to ignite leaner mixtures, which allows for
lower specific fuel consumption, high-repetition rates, high-altitude
operation, and reduced NOx emissions.
Scott Farrenkopf (EVB and Director) and Steve Herbruck (CEO and Chair)
of GoTek Energy bring their lessons learned from the development,
manufacturing and licensing of a rotary (non-Wankel) internal combustion
engine. The fuel agnostic ICE has application in vehicles and vessels,
pumps, compressors, heat exchange and power generation. The primary
benefits of DynaKinetic technology is the reduction in size, weight and
emissions while increasing performance, reliability and serviceability.Event is free for paid LAVA members and sponsors unless otherwise noted. $35 for guests and non-members unless otherwise noted.
