Skeleton Technologies ultracapacitor truck applications

Kinetic Energy Recovery System
for long haul truck

Significant fuel savings & reduced CO2 emissions

Benefits of our solution

  • CO2 savings of 3-9t per year
  • Fuel savings of 5000-15000€ per year
  • Service cost reduction (CAPEX and OPEX)
  • Improved fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions
  • Reduced peak load demand from diesel engine when accelerating = higher efficiency

Challenge

Improving long haul truck efficiency

  • Background
  • Emission standards and requirements in fuel efficiency get stricter
  • A method for recuperating kinetic energy while braking is needed
  • Reliable energy storage device is needed
  • Ability to handle high peak loads when braking and aiding acceleration demands
  • Key Challenges
  • Provide a reliable long-life energy storage device for KERS systems
  • Reliably handle high power peaks from braking and accelerating
  • known consequences
  • Low battery lifetime & need of additional cooling
  • High maintenance and replacement battery costs
  • Limited recuperation ability because of batteries
