Ammonia Vehicle to Grid Technology
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA and TORONTO, ON, October 16, 2007 Hydrofuel Inc. (Canada, USA, Australia) will be announcing a new V2G Vehicle technology today at the Fourth Ammonia Fuel Conference at the in San Francisco California. The after market hardware will allow vehicles running on virtually any fuel to be modified to generate electricity when parked. The company will provide the direct drive Hydrofuel® VTG generator and hardware necessary to be easily attached to vehicles with PTO (power take off) access panels on the transmission. Automatic transmissions traditionally have one panel, manual transmissions two. Each generator will produce from 15 to 25 KW (Kilowatts) of electricity. This is the first multi-platform V2G application for automotive, industrial and agricultural vehicle conversions and is expected to be widely available throughout North America in 2008. The Hydrofuel® V2G system can be used by OEMs.
"This innovative technology and marketing strategy will allow anyone to participate in Hydrofuel Inc.'s roll out of world leading energy and environmental technology. Through this distributed electrical power application purchasers of the technology will be able to make low cost electrical power for their own use; at work, home or the cottage and sell excess power for a profit where grid connections are available. Our unique marketing program provides customers a choice in obtaining the generators and hardware. They can either pay for the system and utility connection fees themselves and keep 100% of the profits or, in some circumstances, receive their Hydrofuel® VTG conversion system for free in exchange for Hydrofuel Inc. receiving 50% of the revenue from the sale of electrical power," said Greg Vezina, Hydrofuel Inc. Chairman and CEO.
Customers who combine our V2G technology with our recently announced Hydrofuel(R) branded NH3 vehicle fuel conversion system will have carbon free automotive fuel and electrical power generation capabilities. NOx emissions are estimated to be about 25% of those of hydrocarbon fuels. The adaptation of this technology will drastically reduce the need for large scale hydrocarbon and nuclear power plants, the need for transmission lines, transmission losses and global warming. Manufacturing, distribution channels and pricing will be announced separately.
