WYTHEVILLE, Va., March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Evatran announced today, in
cooperation with Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL), that it has been awarded a
subcontract under ORNL's DOE Project, "Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) and
Charging of Plug-In Electric Vehicles." The three-year project, opened in
October of 2012, covers high power wireless charging technology integration
into electric vehicles currently on-sale in select US markets. Evatran's
knowledge of efficient wireless power transfer, system controls, and intuitive
user interfaces coupled with the Company's documented success in prototype
field trials led ORNL to select the three year-old, Virginia-based start up
for inclusion.

Utilizing strong technical knowledge out of its office in the Research
Triangle Park area of Raleigh, Evatran will focus on vehicle integration and
supply production designs for the Project Team. "This is our area of
expertise," commented Rebecca Hough, Evatran CEO and co-founder. "We've spent
the last three years focusing on how to efficiently and safely integrate
wireless charging systems into electric vehicles. The information and
learnings gathered from our field trials will be extremely valuable in helping
ORNL to create an efficient, low cost production design. We couldn't be more
excited to work with such strong industry leaders on this initiative to bring
wireless charging into the mainstream."

The project team, led by ORNL, also includes two major international
automotive manufacturers, Clemson University's International Center for
Automotive Research (CU-ICAR), Cisco, and Duke Energy. After a first year of
design research, the team will integrate 6.6kW and 10 kW designs into six
production electric vehicles during the second year of the project. The third
year of the project will see those vehicles placed into the field for limited
field trials. The project team will install static wireless charging systems
and show capability for dynamic wireless charging (wireless charging while
vehicle is in motion).
