120 Plug-In Hybrid Work Trucks On Their Way

Johnson Controls will supply lithium-ion batteries to power large plug-in hybrid trucks as part of a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) electrification initiative.

About 120 work trucks, to be used by publicly owned utilities and municipal electric companies, will utilize plug-in hybrid power systems by Odyne Systems, LLC, using Johnson Controls’ batteries.

Odyne, in conjunction with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District of California, has been selected to participate in a $45 million dollar DOE grant.

The contract granted to Odyne Systems, LLC by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), directs funding from DOE’s Transportation Electrification initiative, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) of California and other parties in a cost share arrangement with users toward the development and supply of advanced plug-in hybrid and Smart Grid / Smart Charging technology for trucks over 14,000 pounds.

“Johnson Controls Lithium-ion battery technology is helping large fleets reduce fuel consumption, operating costs and emissions,” said David DeGraaf, vice president and general manager, Americas Original Equipment Group, Johnson Controls Power Solutions.
