PMI Atlanta Chapter - Architectural, Engineering, & Construction (Virtual) Forum - 240213

Architectural, Engineering, & Construction (Virtual) Forum - 240213

"Penetrating The Commercial Transportation Market" presented by Venkatesan Murali, Founder & CTO at Merlin Solar Technologies, Inc.

The PMI Atlanta AEC Forum is a focus group that hosts regular events with ranging topics in the architectural, engineering, and construction fields. We will show the importance of solid project management in these related fields of study.

Presentation Details   

Commercial transportation is at an inflection point as we transition from Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) to Electric Vehicles (EVs). Myriad challenges remain. Merlin Solar has established itself as a leading renewable technology that works equally well on ICE & EV vehicles and will play a role in the seamless transition.

In ICE vehicles, Merlin Solar extends battery life, eliminates idling, powers liftgates, and enables smart trailers. In energy intensive operations such as powering truck refrigeration, Merlin plays a crucial role in maximizing the financial ROI, along with a material reduction in GHG emissions. Merlin and its partners have developed a rapid retrofit solution that results in converting ICE vehicles into pluggable Hybrid Electric Vehicles. This has resulted in a 70% reduction in fuel usage. In EVs our solutions focus on range extension – often the most vital parameter slowing down the adoption by fleets.
