Power Optimization of Electro-Thermal Systems (POETS)



Company Overview: 

POETS’ long-term goal is to increase the power density of current mobile electrified systems by 10-100 times over current state of the art systems. While ambitious, this would have a profound impact on a mobile electrified infrastructure of the U.S. and beyond. On-highway vehicles could save between 100-300 million liters of fuel per year and could nearly double the range of all-electric vehicles. Off-highway vehicles could save approximately 100 billion liters of fuel since their electrification is starting from a less mature point than current on-highway vehicles. Similarly, aircraft could see 10-30 billion liters of fuel saved as well as up to 10 million tons of CO2 saved from going into the high altitude atmosphere. These economic and environmental impacts are just the beginning of the art of the possible with the achievement of the POETS vision. More information about POETS is available at: http://poets-erc.org/
