We are proud to be nominated for an Excellence Award by the Smaller Business Association of New England.
SBANE applauds small businesses that have cutting-edge and creative ideas and recognizes them at the The New England Innovation Awards. This program began in the mid-eighties, and has recognized over 200 companies from a large variety of industries. We have been nominated for 2016 because our company represents the objective of the award, with our innovative technology for transportation.
The award process begins with a reception for all nominees who present to a small group of judges. The Blackburn Energy team gave a 15-minute presentation to the panel at this reception to showcase our ideas and solutions. We are hopeful to become a finalist and move onto the next stage of presentations scheduled for April 7th, to spread the word about our RelGen product.
Our RelGen product takes the kinetic energy of a moving vehicle and converts it into usable energy. RelGen produces renewable electricity from a truck’s driveline which we use to power battery based electric heat/AC for sleeper cabs. We create a 4x increase in energy over current systems which makes eliminating overnight engine idle viable. A Blackburn powered solution can save $6,000 in fuel & 21 tons of CO2 annually, per truck.
Please wish us luck in our endeavor to become the 2016 winner of the Excellence Award!
