Clean Tech Institute is a leading research, consulting and training organization in emerging clean & renewable energy industry.
Cleantech Institute Research Group is located at NASA Ames Research Center, in Moffett Field, California. Our consulting offices and training centers are located in major regions throughout California.
Consulting Services: on advanced electric vehicle technologies
Training Services: Certified Electric Vehicle Technician training program
CLEANTECH INSTITUTE and SUBSIDIARIES
Cleantech Institute has 2 wholly owned subsidiaries:
EV Centers of America (“EVCA”) is network of advanced vehicle technology centers or hubs of multiple functions, located at major regions in California.
The objectives of the EV Centers are:
1. Promote clean and sustainable transportation to private and government fleet owners, transit agencies, consumers and community at large
2. Serve as a neutral site for OEM companies to collaborate on advanced vehicle technology research and field testing.
3. To train a new generation of skilled technicians on electric vehicle technologies.
4. To provide repair and maintenance services support to alternative fuels and electric vehicle technologies.
4. To build an electric vehicle fast charging stations infrastructure along the corridor of freeways connecting major cities.
The mission of the Advanced Vehicle Technology Academy is to inspire, to empower and to equip students to succeed in schools by utilizing their full potential for their benefits and for the benefits of society at large. AVTA inspires high school students to learn Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics via the hands-on workshop on building an electric car.
CLEANTECH INSTITUTE LOCATIONS
Clean Tech Institute Research and Consulting Group is focusing on advanced renewable energy projects including Lithium Air Battery and Wireless Charging Systems for electric vehicles. The research projects are being conducted with collaboration with our partners at NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California.
LITHIUM AIR BATTERY TECHNOLOGY
Our research team lead by our director Lloyd L. Tran is currently developing Lithium Air Technology that can potentially provides 10 times more energy density than the lithium ion battery technologies. The newly developed Lithium Air Technology will be used to power an AMPTRAN electric car that will go for 400-500 miles between charges. The Lithium Air Battery technology developed by Lloyd Tran is based on proprietary Nanocomposite Technologies.
WIRELESS CHARGING SYSTEM for ELECTRIC VEHICLES:
Electric vehicle charging technology can be divided into two methods: conductive way using an electrical wire and wireless charging. Up to the present time, conductive charging technologies have complex issues related to a physical wire plugging to an electric outlet, charging time frame and safety concern.
Our research team has developed a wireless fast charging system that is capable of charging an electric vehicle while it is stationery or it is moving. The CTI wireless charging system is safe, fast, and with expected efficiency exceeding 90%
The wireless charging system will replace the conductive way, in a similar manner that the wireless telephone communication has drastically replaced the copper wire network that was in existence over the past century.

BUILDING A DC FAST CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE IN CALIFORNIA
EV Centers of America is building a network of DC fast chargers, enabling electric vehicle to travel an extended distance from Sacramento to San Diego, a journey of more than 500 miles connecting many major cities from Northern to Southern California.
The fast chargers are 480 V DC enables all electric vehicles that equipped with a high current on board chargers to get as much as 20 kW-h electrical energy over 30 minutes, or 80% of its maximum energy storage or about 70 miles of travel. The fast charging infrastructure along the freeway corridors remove the key barrier of range limitation for the deployment of electric vehicles.
The Clean Tech Institute is the first Approved and Eligible Training Provider by the State of California for the following training programs:
The Clean Tech Institute's Programs offer several key advantages:
Tuitions for the certificate programs are funded by the US Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Act, WIA and/or California Energy Commission.
