Inventev Reaches National Clean Tech Open Semifinals
August 1, 2013
DETROIT, (August 1, 2013) --Participating in the Cleantech Open national business competition, Inventev has been named a semifinalist from the Midwest region. The company is the developer of a plug-in hybrid electric truck propulsion system that provides power on job sites and for disaster response with mobile temporary power generation.
"We plan to integrate generating capacity onto fleets of hybrid electric trucks, saving fuel while also having a standby generation capability when needed," said Inventev CEO Dave Stenson. "By using the same motor that will electrically drive the truck to generate utility-grade power when stationary, the Inventev system becomes very capital-efficient versus trailer-mounted generators."
Inventev has been working Next-Energy, a Detroit nonprofit with expertise in accelerating advanced energy-based technologies. The Cleantech Open competition will conclude regionally in October with finalist competing for the national awards in November in San Jose, Calif.
