EcoMotors named 2011 Energy Innovation Pioneer by IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA)
Allen Park, Michigan, March 9, 2011 – In conjunction with the CERAWeek 2011 conference in Houston, EcoMotors has been named as a 2011 Energy Innovation Pioneer. IHS CERA annually selects innovators based on their potential as game changers or drivers of improvements in existing systems. CERAWeek 2011, highlighted by addresses from former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, among others, is dedicated to providing insight into the future of the global energy industry and to impacting decisions and policymaking.
“We are very proud to have been named as an Energy Innovation Pioneer and to participate in the CERAWeek 2011 forum,” said Don Runkle, CEO of EcoMotors. “This recognition not only underscores the revolutionary nature of our opoc® engine, but also reflects our increasing momentum as OEMs like Navistar partner with us to commercialize this remarkable technology.”
In his remarks to the CERAWeek attendees, Runkle illuminated the “holy grail” nature of the unique engine’s benefits, saying, “The opoc® innovation achieves the two elusive goals of every engine designer for the last hundred years – power with every expansion stroke and truly modular displacement…with emissions compliance and low cost.”
