Captures, stores, and reuses electrical energy that is usually wasted as heat.
What is it?
Power From Gravity is a groundbreaking invention that allows for cost effective transformation of locomotives that are equipped with dynamic breaking into hybrid locomotives. Instead of wholly relying on fuel as a source of power, it captures, stores, and reuses the energy produced during dynamic braking mode. The energy stored can then be used by the same locomotive in pulling mode or it can be stored in Battery Packs to be used by other trains. This improves on the use of energy thus decreasing the energy consumption and also reduces the amount of heat that dissipates into the atmosphere.
