  2. 2. Company Background Confidential 1 •Established to develop and market a highly fuel efficient engine system for Class 8 heavy trucks •Hybrid series diesel electric technology •System development has focused on retrofit market opportunities initially, leading to OEM sales later
  3. 3. Target Vehicle Classification Confidential Light Duty Medium Duty Heavy Duty Class 1 0-6,000 lb Class 4 14,001-16,000 lb Class 7 26,001-33,000 lb Class 2 6,001-10,000 lb Class 5 16,001-19,500 lb Class 8 33,001-150,000 lb Class 3 10,001-14,000 lb Class 6 19,501-26,000 lb Class 8 Heavy Duty Trucks are the largest and most ubiquitous in the logistics chain for moving goods in the U.S. and Europe. In 2007 Class 8 trucks in the U.S. drove 128.4 Billion Miles for an average of 45,000 Miles and consumed $2.46 Billion in diesel fuel. 2
  4. 4. Addressable Market Size Confidential Total Market Size (USA) : 2.7 Million Vehicles Age of Vehicles 0-16 Years Average Age : 7-8 years 0-5 Years 845,000 vehicles 6-11 Years 1,010,000 vehicles 12-16 Years 845,000 vehicles Probably too young for conversion. Original drive train still under warranty. Conversion can be made but not likely until older fleet vehicles have been converted. Probably too old for conversion. Payback on investment would start to look questionable. Conversion can be made but not likely until younger fleet vehicles have been converted. Sweet spot. Original drive train out of warranty - lots of life still left in the vehicle. 3
  5. 5. Problem Statement Confidential - U.S. Transportation System: Nearly 70% of freight is moved by truck in the U.S. resulting in $660.3 Billion in revenue for the trucking industry in 2008. - Class 8 Heavy Duty Trucks are the largest and most ubiquitous in the logistics chain for moving goods in the U.S. and Europe. In 2007 Class 8 trucks in the U.S. drove 128.4 Billion miles for an average of 45,000 miles and consumed $2.46 Billion in diesel fuel. - As a percentage of trucks in the U.S. Transportation System, Class 8 vehicles represent only 2.7% but consume 21.6% of the total fuel used. - Records by the U.S. DOT show that for the past forty years beginning in 1970 the average fuel economy for the Class 8 truck segment was 4.8 mpg. - Diesel fuel costs of Class 8 Heavy Duty Trucks are rising at 3-7% per year and are now 30-50% of the operating costs of truck fleets in the U.S. and Europe. - Class 8 trucks are ranked 2nd behind air transportation in terms of CO2 emissions (117 grams per ton mile). - The leading global Class 8 OEMs have indicated as recently as 2010 that their target for fuel efficiency increase utilizing improvements in a wide range of components besides the drivetrain is 8-9 mpg by 2020. 4
  6. 6. Government Response Confidential President Obama Announces First Ever Savings Standard for Heavy-Duty Trucks, Buses August 9, 2011. Washington D.C. - Under the comprehensive new national program, trucks and buses built in 2014 through 2018 will reduce oil consumption by a projected 530 million barrels and greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution by approximately 270 million metric tons. Like the Administration’s historic car standards, this program – which relies heavily on off-the-shelf technologies – was developed in coordination with truck and engine manufacturers, fleet owners, the State of California, environmental groups and other stakeholders.  By the 2018 model year, the program is expected to achieve significant savings relative to current levels, across vehicle types.  Certain combination tractors – commonly known as big-rigs or semi-trucks – will be required to achieve up to approximately 20 percent reduction in fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by model year 2018, saving up to 4 gallons of fuel for every 100 miles travelled. Standard Goal – Class 8 Trucks (Estimated) 2011 mpg 2018 mpg 5.2 6.8 5
  7. 7. DoE Super Truck Program Confidential Program Launched in 2010 with $115.0 million in Funding Goals: -By 2015, improve heavy truck fuel economy (engine thermal efficiency) by 20% with demonstration in commercial vehicle platforms. - By 2018, improve heavy truck fuel economy by 30% compared to 2009 baseline. Participants: Cummins Inc. (Columbus, Indiana) - Develop and demonstrate a highly efficient and clean diesel engine, an advanced waste heat recovery system, an aerodynamic Peterbilt tractor and trailer combination, and a fuel cell auxiliary power unit to reduce engine idling. Focus is on engine efficiency. Funding Amount: $38.8 million Daimler Trucks North America, LLC (Portland, Oregon) - Develop and demonstrate technologies including engine downsizing, electrification of auxiliary systems such as oil and water pumps, waste heat recovery, improved aerodynamics and hybridization. Focus is on hybridization. Funding Amount: $39.5 million Navistar, Inc. (Fort Wayne, Indiana) - Develop and demonstrate technologies to improve truck-trailer aerodynamics, combustion efficiency, waste heat recovery, hybridization, idle reduction, and reduced rolling resistance tires. Focus is on aerodynamics. Funding Amount: $37.3 million 6

  12. 12. Concept Inspiration Confidential ePower Engine System’s Hybrid System Drive Unit: Concept Inspiration Comes from the Current State-of-the-Art Diesel Electric Locomotive Drive System Diesel electric hybrid locomotive technology has enabled the Railway Transportation Industry to increase freight rail fuel efficiency 104 percent since 1980. In 2009, railroads generated 67 percent more ton-miles than in 1980, while using 18 percent less fuel. 11
  13. 13. I.P. Development Confidential ePower’s Core Proprietary Technology value proposition revolves around the way it uses relatively low-cost off-the-shelf components to control the amount and delivery of the electricity from the AC generator to and from the electric motor and, when needed, the charging of and flow of electricity from the battery pack to the electric motor. • IP strategy is to protect its system design, component interaction and component integration. • Initial prior art search undertaken 1st half 2009, patent memorandum and invention disclosures developed. • ePower engaged patent attorneys Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Respanti, LLP in September 2009 to undertake a full review of prior art relating to diesel electric series hybrid propulsion systems. • Pietragallo issue favorable patentability opinion, October 2009. • Provisional Patent Application No. 61/297,094 filed January 2010 covering 15 initial claims. • Patent assigned by Mr. Jay Bowman to ePower in 2010. • Conversion to a conventional patent application, along with concomitant international patent filings was completed in January 2011. 12

  19. 19. Global Market Opportunity Confidential All regions globally facing issues related to: Reducing oil consumption Developed economies at plateau while developing economies grow at very rapid rate. China now # 2 in terms of consumption, but per capita is only 1/10th of USA. Reducing CO2 emissions Major concern for all governments, particularly strong focus in Europe. Economic impact of rising fuel prices Savings achievable in USA are high, however USA has relatively low fuel costs compared to ie. Europe at 2-2.5x cost per gallon. 18
