B2B Partnerships for saving vehicle energy Talman Associates is working collaboratively with OEM partners and its supply chain on the adoption of solar photovoltaic energy in the commercial vehicle and public transportation sectors. The principles governing our work in this sector are as follows:- Clear evidence on energy savings by the reduction of carbon fuels Potential additional source of power for operating systems e.g. lighting & telecoms Durability in all operating conditions Integrated into vehicle or trailer design Suitable for retrofit Ease of application and maintenance A sustainable solution Value Proposition for the commercial vehicle and transportation industries The value proposition for these sectors includes:- Reduces fuel consumption - measurable Reduces CO2 emissions - measurable Reduces alternator and generator use Extends battery life Provides power when the vehicle is not in use e.g. telecoms Provides silent energy Promotes a healthier environment Our Offer Our expertise is based on our knowledge of light weight thin film flexible photovoltaic materials combined with relevant attachment materials, charge controllers, data loggers and batteries. We work closely with all leading international producers and in certain examples academia to produce tailored solutions relevant to the client’s specific requirements. Typical client engagement is as follows:- Agree power generation required Determine attachment and connection methods Trial with at least one vehicle or trailer Monitor performance against vehicle operation and prevailing solar conditions Review and finalise specification Tender Implement supply chain
