Plug-in Electric System to Cut Emissions on Transportation

Project description

Greener and quieter refrigerated trucks

Electrification of transport combines an energy efficient power train system with the opportunity to use any source of energy other than fossil fuels. The EU-funded project ADDPLUGIN is helping bring to market the world’s first plug-in electricity system for refrigeration trucks, vans, trailers and containers. Based on a patented solution, the technology start-up AddVolt has developed a cloud-connected device that can recover energy during braking. It can also store the energy in order to power the vehicle’s refrigeration units. This is good news for Europe’s 1.1 million refrigerated trucks that will be able to perform their cold operation in electric mode. The technology is quiet and easy to apply in all vehicles with refrigeration units. It is also fully compatible with hybrid, liquefied natural gas and fully electric vehicles.
