Carrier is teaming up with ConMet to expand its electrification capabilities by adding wheel-based power generation that captures energy that otherwise would be wasted during braking events.

ConMet's eMobility division has developed the PreSet Plus eHub system, an in-wheel electric motor application that repurposes energy from coasting and braking, providing electric solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicle markets. When paired with a Carrier Vector unit, this technology can deliver a zero-emissions transport refrigeration solution.

The alliance advances Carrier's broader zero-emission transport refrigeration solutions, with the availability of electric options for trailer, truck, and light commercial vehicle customers before the end of 2022, helping address upcoming emissions regulations, company officials said in a press release.

"We see this alliance as a great strategic fit; Carrier and its customers are in a position to best leverage this electric hub system application and add scale," said John Waters, president of ConMet. "Our technology helps expedite the adoption of clean transport refrigeration solutions that will eliminate the need for diesel fuel engines."
