Hybrid Electric Systems for the Trucking Industry
Hyliion, Pittsburgh, PA, has been awarded the grand prize of $20,000 in the 2016 "Create the Future" Design Contest. The company hybridized the trailer portion of the tractor-trailer combination - saving over 30% on fuel. Their system uses regenerative braking to capture power when the trailer is slowing down or going down hill, and reuses that power to help the truck-trailer up hills.
