Presenting: “Power Beyond the Battery” By Chad Hall, @PowerHall_UCAPS

By Chad Hall, @PowerHall_UCAPS

The automotive industry has always been at the forefront of innovation. With the addition of innovative features such as power steering, fuel injection engines and four-wheel drive, as well as smaller, functional additions, like the introduction of electric windows, built-in GPS and heated seats, automakers have consistently introduced customers to new technology that they now cannot live without. And while it seems as though car manufacturers have thought of everything, now the automotive industry is at a critical juncture. Due to demands from environmental groups, international regulators and even consumers, OEMs must take on a bigger challenge: leading a fundamental shift in how cars are powered.

Cars now need to be fuel efficient and cost effective, and cannot sacrifice any of the features consumers have grown to expect. Due to declining costs and advances in technology, ultracapacitors are quickly becoming the single most promising technology to power the automotive industry through this pivotal transition. Ioxus technology is leading the way, and so we are proud to announce a new education campaign: “Power Beyond the Battery.” Through a series of events over the next few months, we will work to raise awareness about the benefits to ultracapacitor technology and to stop/start technology as a whole. Expect to see:
• A Q&A series designed to educate consumers on what to ask before buying a hybrid car
• A white paper on an important topic to OEMs – the cost of an ultracapacitor-based system
• A Twitter chat with me (Chad Hall), in which I’ll answer all your questions about ultracapacitors and stop/start technology

And much more!

Follow @Ioxus and @PowerHall_UCAPS for more on the campaign. And, as always, tweet us any questions or suggestions you may have.
