Ecolution has signed letters of intent with two U.S. cities: Amarillo, Texas, and St. Paul, Minnesota. These agreements entail Ecolution connecting its technology to Amarillo’s waste management vehicles and St. Paul’s train depot to capture wasted energy and put it back into their cities. Agreements like these are an important step forward in the decarbonization of the country and a move in the direction of full renewable energy adoption.
Ecolution is seeking to become the global transportation industry’s largest source of clean energy. Since its inception in 2016, the minority-owned company’s experienced team of entrepreneurs developed and patented an innovative method of recycling ‘wasted’ kinetic energy from moving vehicles, entitled MARS, invented by Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder Johnny Then-Gautier. Unlike regenerative braking, this technology requires no engine. The development of the prototype will enable municipalities, power, and logistics companies to assess the benefits of the invention. A lead investor in Ecolution Power Company is Brown Venture Group, LLC, a venture capital firm exclusively for Black, Latino, and Indigenous technology startups.
