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.

Serial Entrepreneurs sharing their knowledge, experience and best practices for getting the most from their professional relationships.

The companies:

GreenTech 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.

CEO 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.

B. 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.
