Hydraulic Braking, Propulsion System Reduces Vehicle Fuel Consumption and Carbon Footprint

November 05, 2008

CHICAGO – Recaptured Energy Technologies has developed a new hydraulic braking and propulsion system for fleet, commercial, and transit vehicles that can be retrofit to existing vehicles. The system captures wasted brake energy from frequent braking and converts it to an auxiliary source of energy to power the vehicle, increasing fuel efficiency and reducing harmful emissions.

“The unique benefit of our system is that it can be retrofit to existing vehicles, so there is no need to purchase new alternative-energy vehicles that may not provide anticipated fuel economy,” said Sam Jones, president of Recaptured Energy Technologies. “Because the system is specifically designed to be retrofit, existing vehicles will see lower emissions, less engine management, and reduced fuel consumption.”

Recaptured Energy also offers consulting services, including drive cycle analysis, asset utilization analysis, and return on investment analysis. From the evaluation of hybrid technologies and drive cycle characteristics to the examination of route specific variables, Recaptured Energy provides the testing and analysis that helps decision makers to best utilize their fleet assets.
