New Energy Completes Commercial-Scale Prototype Able to Generate Electricity from Moving Trucks, Long-Haul Rigs, and Buses

“The successful completion of our brand new MotionPower(TM)-Heavy system at its full commercial scale is a pivotal accomplishment for New Energy, which now enables us to launch field tests and optimize our technology for eventual commercial installation and deployment,” stated Mr. Meetesh V. Patel, President and CEO of New Energy Technologies, Inc.

“With the most perplexing invention phase of our early research and development behind us, I’m eager to have our team complete the more manageable mechanical tasks associated with tweaking the engineering, identifying the best electricity storage systems, and engaging strategic manufacturing partners to help us advance MotionPower(TM) towards commercialization.”

The Company has painstakingly completed the technically complex and unpredictable invention, design, proof-of-concept, and prototyping phases of its MotionPower(TM) development plan, having successfully invented, designed, fabricated, assembled, prototyped, scaled-up, and lab-tested the Company’s newest patent-pending technologies for generating sustainable electricity from the motion of vehicles.

As a result, the Company today announced plans to aggressively advance its novel MotionPower(TM) systems towards the next phase of product development and commercial deployment, primarily focusing on mechanical and electrical engineering refinements, materials selection, and manufacturing processes.

“Our next steps put us on a much-anticipated conventional product development path, often a more predictable engineering course than the early invention process, which in contrast, has required us to solve the many random and unforeseen engineering challenges inherent to creating a brand new invention,” explained Mr. Patel.

“Importantly, these next steps could provide our business with the information we need in order to establish a competitive pricing model, characterize our power output profile, and present a definitive timeline for commercial deployment,” continued Mr. Patel. “Above all, the data we acquire through conventional product development steps could serve to replace any timing and cost ‘estimates’ — which can often be hit-and-miss — with better defined and more reliable forecasts based on quantifiable metrics related to materials, manufacturing, and other considerations.”

Having completed the Company’s early invention research phase, engineers will work towards the selection of product materials and manufacturing systems which can increase durability while reducing production costs, and will further refine specific sub-systems to maximize ‘kinetic’ energy capture from vehicles and boost the electricity generated from the motion of vehicles on our roadways.

More than 250 million vehicles are registered in America, and an estimated 6 billion miles are driven on our nation’s roads every day. As millions of commercial heavy vehicles and cars slow or come to a stop at toll plazas, rest areas, traffic calming areas, drive-thrus, weigh scales, and countless other roadway points, excess ‘kinetic’ energy is produced similar to the kinetic energy present when a bicycle continues to roll even after a cyclist has stopped pedaling.
