    Twitter Pitch
    Thanks to its electric Active Stop-Start, Effenco offers saving
    Of all the vehicles on the road, vocational trucks are some of the biggest energy consumers. Their weight and duty cycle give them mammoth fuel consumption and maintenance fees. Effenco decided to tackle the problem by developing a unique Active Stop-Start electric.
    Thanks to its Active Stop-Start hybrid system, Effenco's clients benefit from fuel savings of 30% and GHG emissions reduced by 19 to 28 tons per year .
    Current clients of Effenco are private fleet operators and cities, Ports, transport and distribution companies.
    Value proposition
    The Active STop-Start hybrid System is compatible with all types and brands of vocational trucks on the market. This allows Effenco's clients to keep buying trucks from their usual dealers which, in turn, makes the technology easier to adopt. Furthermore, the Active Stop-Start System is a parallel architecture, a huge asset since it allows the operator to effectively turn off the system and finish the day without hindering the schedule. This is particularly helpful if damage occurs or when maintenance is required.

    Effenco's Active Stop-Start System and its logic are protected by international patents.
