Cleantech Institute is a leading research, consulting and training organization in emerging clean & renewable energy industry.
Clean Tech Institute Research Group is located at NASA Ames Park, focusing on advanced renewable energy projects. Our research group is collaborating with our partners at NASA Ames Research Center, universittes and institutes in California.
LITHIUM AIR BATTERY TECHNOLOGY
Most of today’s electric vehicles (EVs) are powered by lithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries.
One of the biggest downsides is the limited range between recharging.
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 Lithium Air Battery technology invented by Lloyd L. Tran is based on proprietary Nanocomposite Technologies.
Clean Tech Institute has licensed its proprietary advanced battery technology to Lithium Air Industries. The newly developed Lithium Air Technology will be used to power an AMPTRAN electric car that will go for 400-500 miles between charges.
WIRELESS CHARGING SYSTEM for ELECTRIC VEHICLES:
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.
In addition, the wireless charging system will allow an EV to be charged while it is at a parking location, during a short stop at a traffic lights or while it is moving.
In a near future, electric vehicles can be charged while driving non-stop on a car-pool lane, equipped with wireless charging system underneath the pavement. The amount of energy being transmitted can be recorded and billed as in an automatic "FasTrack" lanes in California today, where vehicles do not have to stop to pay for tolls.

Testimonials from the graduates of the Cleantech Institute :
“I cannot say enough good things about Cleantech Institute’s Certified Electric Vehicle Techncian (CEVT) Training Program. The staff is on the leading edge of technology. A diverse group of instructors providing in-depth theory and hands-on at an engineering level.
The CEVT training class offers in-depth explanation of information presented. CTI has well equipped classroom and workshops. The CEVT course also incorporates extra-curriculum events, networking opportunities in the EV industry, entrepreneurial and employment opportunities. The course includes presentations from guest speakers in the EV industry i.e. manufacturers, conversion companies and technical experts. The course is demanding & challenging which is a testament to its high standards. Thank you to all at the Cleantech Institute”

“CEVT is a great place to get in-depth knowledge on current alternative energy technologies, especially Electric Vehicle Technology. I got an opportunity to convert an internal combustion engine vehicle to 100% electric vehicle. How cool is that. I would definitely recommend this program to my friends if they asked.”
