  • Mobile Power Generation with Fuel Efficiency--Changing the Future of Work Trucks & Job SitesJune 5, 2013Dave StensonFounder and CEOhttp://inventev.cominventevCALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013
  •  Southeast Michigan based Extensive automotive backgrounds PHEV up-fit of new commercial trucks Out of the way of OEMs (e.g. CAFE, HD) “Forgotten middle,” Medium Duty (class 2B to 5/6) Less prioritized for electrification given “niche” nature Look to change the business modelinventev CALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013In Brief:inventev
  • inventev CALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013A Startup PerspectiveWhat we heardWhat we knew
  •  EVs are “Yesterday’s News” for investors “Detroit?”…no margins in automotive “too capital intense”…”new transmission??” “Everyone’s failing in that space” “VCs have moved on to Big Data”inventev CALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013A Startup PerspectiveWhat we heard:
  • A Startup PerspectiveWhat we knew: “Pockets of Passion” Trend is electrification over imported oil GHG, CO2, NOx, Particulates Energy security Pure Economics “Fuel” price differential is compelling Commercial fleets will probably be first Knowledge of total costs Longer retention for payback Corporate sustainability initiativesinventev CALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013

  • inventev CALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013A Startup PerspectiveWhat we heardWhat we knewWhat we learned
  • What we Learned No new vehicle architecture; no new vehicle brand Not a new auto company…leverage industry resources Displacing diesels can add to value proposition ($8000+) Residual value of battery is important…need to solve! Leasing battery may be a key enabler for fleets Look primarily to strategic partners and projects, not toVenture Capital (at least in early stages) Change the message:inventev CALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013not… “another hybrid truck company”rather… ”mobile power generation for disasterresponse and anti-idling job sites”
  • Emerging Electric Utility Collaborationfor Inventev PHEV & Export Power DevelopmentinventevOthersCALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013
  • Result Value proposition for payback under 4 years Core technology for diesel displacement for select dutycycles Focused on classes 4-6 initially, utility-grade exportpower, job-site idle reduction Recognition of great team to execute, still to besupplemented once funded Core collaborations under development…could link tostrategic investmentsinventev CALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013

  • inventev Solution New and unique transmission architecture as core to Gen 2 system;up-fit as part of new truck delivery Enables BOTH fuel savings AND new features eclipsing existingtechnologies: Micro-grid or job-site power export for outages or maintenance Electric driven hydraulics avoiding idling for buckets, etc. 30-50 miles all-electric range, then range-extended with engine Perfect for fixed-route stop/go delivery or service vehiclesmotor/gen #1integrated transmissionmotor/gen #2gasolineengineinventev CALSTART Leadership Circle 05Jun2013
