Cleantech Institute Research Group is located at NASA Ames Research Center, in Moffett Field, California.
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.
Clean Tech Institute has licensed its proprietary advanced battery technology to Lithium Air Industries.
The results of the Lithium Air Nanocomposite Technology has been submitted under a $5 million grant application in the 2011 Vehicle Technologies Program Wide Funding by the US Department of Energy.
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.
