New Energy Technologies, Inc. and the City of Roanoke, Virginia, jointly debuted on October 22, 2011 the latest MotionPower(TM) Express system, capable of generating sustainable electricity from moving vehicles. MotionPower(TM) assists vehicles in slowing down, and in the process, captures the slowing vehicle's motion (kinetic) energy before it is lost as brake heat and friction, thus converting this energy into electricity. The lead engineer for the company is Mr. Jerry Lynch, President of Sigma Design Company of Middlesex, New Jersey. Sigma designed and built the prototype of this clean alternative energy product.
This first-ever public demonstration of New Energy's brand new roadway technology was demonstrated at the Roanoke Civic Center in Virginia, a high-traffic volume entertainment, convention, and cultural complex from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, October 22, 2011.
The live demonstration provided "important information that is the vital engineering link to rapidly developing our technology for commercial deployment." stated John Conklin, President and CEO of New Energy Technologies, Inc.
Once fully optimized and installed, engineers anticipate that MotionPower(TM) devices may be used to augment or replace conventional residential or commercial electrical supplies used to power roadway signs, street and building lights, emergency power storage systems and other electronics, appliances and devices used in homes and businesses.
