Uqm Technologies Alternative Energy Techn Grows

UQM Technologies, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer William G. Rankin told The New York Society of Security Analysts 6th Annual Alternative Energy Industry Conference that demand for the company’s proprietary high-efficiency electric motors, generators and power electronic inverters for alternative energy products continues to increase.

GOLDEN, Colorado – June 20, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] “Although gasoline prices have fallen from their US$2.00-plus per-gallon highs of a year ago and California’s rolling brown outs are no longer in the daily news, the demand for clean, efficient, alternative energy systems continues to grow,” said Rankin. “Our proprietary product sales and technology development revenue for our recently completed fiscal year were up nearly 25 percent.” Rankin also noted that the company has a variety of new and exciting engineering development programs underway that are providing significant opportunities to develop and supply products in both large existing, as well as high-potential, emerging markets for commercial and military customers. Several of the Company’s recent announcements include: — The funding and completion of the initial design and testing of a modular power electronic inverter for distributed power applications. The new inverter product, which is designed to convert direct current (DC) output of power generation equipment to 110/220 volt alternating current (AC), is 96 percent efficient, features low harmonic distortion sine wave output and digital signal processing control in a package one-third the size of conventional inverters. — The commencement of in-service testing by United Parcel Service (UPS) of the industry’s first hybrid electric package delivery vehicle propelled by two UQM(R) PowerPhase(TM) 100 systems and a generator. — Successful completion of testing and the commercial availability of our Integrated Electric Traction System (INTETS), an advanced propulsion system for electric, hybrid electric and fuel cell electric vehicles. The system, which is designed to be the sole propulsion system for mid-size vehicles and as an axle drive for larger vehicles, measures just 15 inches in length and 11 inches in diameter (excluding an optional electronic inverter), has a peak efficiency in excess of 91 percent (including gear reduction), a continuous power rating of 30kW, peak power of 75kW and peak torque of 1,700 N-m.
