Mar 3 15
Allison Transmission Holdings Inc. and Cummins Inc. announced that they have received certification from the California Air Resources Board (ARB) to sell the model year 2015 Allison H 40/50 EP hybrid propulsion system paired with the Cummins ISB6.7 and ISL9 diesel-electric hybrid engines for transit buses and coaches. The dual Executive Order (EO) issued by the ARB to both Allison and Cummins allows sales of the Allison H 40/50 EP with the Cummins ISB6.7 or ISL9 diesel-electric hybrid engine, and is valid for 2015 models. The ARB first provided approval in 2014, but the process requires the EO to be reviewed for renewal eligibility on a model year basis. Allison's H 40/50 EP hybrid propulsion system is used for both straight and articulated transit buses. It has been shown to improve fuel economy up to 25% over similar diesel buses. Additionally, its regenerative braking capability can significantly extend the brake change interval by as much as 350%. The Cummins ISB6.7 and ISL9 diesel-electric hybrid engines feature proven technology designed and developed in-house that is optimized to deliver the efficiency, durability and performance transit bus customers expect. The ISB6.7 diesel-electric hybrid engine is rated at 280 hp (209kW) while the ISL9 diesel-electric hybrid engine is rated at 330 hp (246kW) for the transit bus market.
Cummins and Tangent Energy Partner to Launch eDGegen™ Series Power Platform
Feb 26 15
Cummins Inc. and Tangent Energy Solutions are partnering to bundle clean diesel and natural gas generators with a Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS) helping commercial and industrial customers manage energy consumption on the grid while reducing their costs. The partnership of Cummins and Tangent will make it easier for customers to dispatch generators during times of peak demand when costs on the energy grid are higher. eDGegen™ -- powered by Cummins® consists of a Cummins clean diesel or natural gas engine equipped with a suite of integrated technology and managed services provided by Tangent. The DERMS technology platform, Tangent AMP™, predicts and alerts customers ahead of peak demand periods and other economic opportunities on the energy grid. The managed service, Demand Design PLUS™, activates generator power and/or demand management strategies when energy grid capacity and prices are at their peak. Market factors, including power plant retirements and lower natural gas prices, are predicted to increase the industry’s reliance on customer-side energy resources to provide power and balance volatility on the energy grid. This shift toward the “grid edge” creates more economic opportunities for customers that are equipped to recognize and respond to market signals. At the same time these opportunities cannot interfere with the normal operation of customer energy systems. The eDGegen™ - powered by Cummins® product line consists of four generator-DERMS integrated power platforms ranging from 750kW to 2.0MW. These systems are designed to reduce customer capacity charges and other costs that arise during periods of peak energy demand or when premium charges apply. eDGegen™ - powered by Cummins™ will be rolled out to customers primarily through Tangent’s growing network of energy retailer and municipal utility partners who have an interest in reducing demand peaks and better integrating with customer assets.
