Bolder Joins MIT/Industry Consortium on Advanced Automotive Components and SystemsMay 01, 2000 by Jeff Shepard
Bolder Technologies Corp. (Golden, CO) announced it has become a full operating member of the MIT/Industry Consortium on Advanced Automotive Electrical/Electronic Components and Systems. A primary goal of the consortium is the coordination and conversion of power systems in automobiles from 12V to 36V as early as 2003.
"The auto industry is committed to higher voltage that will allow auto designers to adopt electronic systems that improve fuel efficiency and air quality," stated BOLDER Chairman, President and CEO Roger F. Warren. We are very proud to be a member of the MIT consortium and believe that Bolder's Thin-Metal Film battery technology will play a key role in the auto industry's transition to 42V systems. As part of the consortium, we will be able to participate in the planning for that transition."
