 Project objective

AddVolt is a technology-based Start-Up responsible for the World’s First Plug-in Electric system which eliminates the van, truck, trailer and reefer container’s diesel usage. Our patented solution is an intelligent, non-invasive and cloud-connected device that recovers energy during braking and truck’s slowdowns (regenerative braking), stores it and powers the vehicle’s auxiliary units such as refrigeration units and lifts gates, emulating the power grid, reducing the trucks fuel consumption and dependence on secondary diesel engines. There are 1.1 million refrigerated trucks in Europe and over 4 million worldwide . The reduction in fuel consumption in the Heavy-Duty Vehicle´s (HDV) refrigeration unit allows for direct cost savings of 87-100% in fuel expenditure and an equivalent reduction in the CO2 emissions (demonstrated in real use cases). The reduction of operating noise and the reduction of maintenance costs associated with the extended vehicle life-cycle are also important benefits to be considered. Furthermore, the economic and environmental benefits of AddVolt solution comply with the EU goals of transitioning to a low-carbon economy. AddVolt’s technology is taking a step forward to the electrification of the transport sector, being able to work alongside with fully electric vehicles, increasing their capacity and autonomy.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "ADDPLUGIN" project.
