Superior System and Products for Optimal Performance
Hydraulic hybrid power does not require complex electrical circuits and processors, nor platinum electrodes, power conversions or batteries. In fact, the hydraulic system is based on an old and basic mechanical system using compressed fluid to store energy. The concept is elegant in its simplicity, then made more compact, lightweight, rugged and reliable by NRG Dynamix through the use of modern materials, packaging and component innovations.
The inherent power and reliability of a hydraulic hybrid system attracted the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, garnering a contract to produce military vehicles. Other proven applications include buses, taxis, commercial transport and automobiles.
NRG Dynamix is a Khosla Ventures cleantech portfolio company.
