New PHEV Debuts at Colorado Clean Energy Event

Denver, Colorado [] A new plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), capable of 125 mpg and receiving electricity from or sending it to the grid, was available for viewing at “Clean Energy Partnerships,” an event held last week as part of Colorado’s Tech Week. Hybrids-Plus, Inc. converted a 2006 Toyota Prius into a PHEV for demonstration purposes. A123Systems supplied the state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Xcel Energy will assess the collective effects of thousands of PHEVs. The Colorado Governor’s Office of Energy Management and Conservation (OEMC) is working with several partners on this project.
