As a tour stop at UC San Diego for the 2013 Sustainability Tour, we demonstrated vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) charging using Wipomo’s energy solution. The 2013 Sustainability Tour was organized by the San Diego Renewable Energy Society (local chapter of American Solar Energy Society).
Sam Syed, owner of Green Energy EPC, has started and trained a community of over 200 photovoltaic systems installers and project developers in San Diego. Many of his students earn NABCEP accreditation, the highest standard of certification in the solar industry for photovoltaic systems installation. The values that Sam teaches in the classroom are the same values that Green Energy upholds outside of the classroom; "Ethical Sales, Quality Installation, and Integrity". That's why we are pleased to announce our partnership with Green Energy EPC for San Diego residential solar photovoltaic systems installations.
Wipomo unveiled the Mobile Energy Ecosystem at UCSD, during the 13th annual San Diego Sustainability Tour, an event organized by the San Diego Renewable Energy Society.
ESW's UCSD chapter won Projcect of the Year award, for the off-grid mobile electric vehicle and personal electronics charging station called the "Solar Slider".
Wipomo has hired Wall Street Journal artist / designer / illustrator, Kelly Alder to bring instantly recognizable emotion and insight to the world of wireless power in motion and energy efficiency. Kelly will work with the marketing team to communicate the core message and provide support with content for a generation that loves to share.
Engineers for a Sustainable World's UCSD chapter students, pose for photographers at UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering, for the "First Launch Ceremony" of the SunEdison awarded grant project called the "Solar Slider", used to charge campus electric vehicles and personal electronics.
Wipomo sponsored the unveiling of ESW's "Solar Slider" electric vehicle and charging station at UCSD.
The "Solar Slider" popped pop-corn and cotton candy for students between classes, to demonstrate solar power generation and energy storage, in a park setting.
Below are two abstracts for projects he is presenting at ASME 2012 International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition, November 9-15, Houston, Texas. (See Track 6, Section 6-9-2 'Distributed Generation and CCHP')
One way to get better fuel economy is to optimize driver performance with a OBD-II dashboard mounted driver behavior coach, code named, the "Eco Orb".
Ron Gremban and Charlie Johnson quietly prepared their electronic control system for a crowdfunding campaign that could be a "first of it's kind", to be used in tandem with their Plug-In Hybrid Prius Upgrade, to improve fuel economy safely.
Led by SDRES board member and UCSD Engineering professor, Kurt Lund, PE, the Engineer's for a Sustainable World design and build the cage to be mounted on a trailer, to raise and deploy a 2kW DC solar array.
Because there are dual fuel sources in a Plug-In Hybrid vehicle, you wouldn't expect it's possible to run out of both, but it's easier than you think. Results can vary drastically based on your personal driving habits and how often you plug-in.
The Engineers for a Sustainable World "Solar Tree Project" initial design document lists Charlie Johnson as an advisor, on behalf of Wipomo and as an elected board member of the San Diego Renewable Energy Society (SDRES).
Given that the near and long term trends
favor rapid adoption of wireless power in transportation and charging personal electronics, what do we know about EMF as it relates to health and safety?
Joseph Ocampo takes the Green Island project to radio on CarTalk, to promote sustainability education for renewable energy and electric vehicles at UCSD.
The Engineer's for a Sustainable World (ESW) chapter at UCSD was awarded a grant by SunEdison to build a "Green Island" off-grid electric vehicle and personal electronics charging station, to be used to by the students and staff, as part of a renewable energy education campaign to support UCSD's campus green initiative.
Wipomo project leader Ron Gremban, tested, evaluated and documented a Plug-In Hybrid Conversion product for an international manufacturer in advance of submission to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for Aftermarket Plug-In Hybrid Certification.
Wipomo, LLC began with a vision of solar powered electric vehicles, wirelessly charged at home, at work and through the roads.
