When and Where

Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA) Conference and Exposition

Nov. 29, 2006

3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Hyatt Regency on Capital Hill, Washington DC


As Officials in Washington are looking for policies to reduce U.S. dependencies on oil, EDTA will showcase presentations that discuss the many benefits that would be brought to society with the increased use of electric vehicles. The public will be able to participate in events such as the ride & drive which will be held on Nov. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., as a way to educate themselves on this advancing technology.

Mr. Maher will discuss the benefits of ultracapacitors and how they incorporate proprietary balancing, monitoring and thermal management capabilities to ensure industry-leading charge/discharge performance, high reliability and long operational life.

He will discuss how high-performance ultracapacitors modules are designed to satisfy rapidly growing global demand for braking energy recuperation and torque assist systems for hybrid bus and truck drive trains and electric rail vehicles.
