At Joule Case we are lucky enough to have the support from several amazing individuals. A few are listed here in our Advisory Board.
In 2007 Alex Livingston and James Wagoner had a vision to improve the design of electric cars making them feasible for the way we drive here in the US. That design centered on a modular scalable battery called Fuel 2.0™. The white cases you see in our images are the original Fuel 2.0™ modules.
The concept was a simple one, different vehicles require different units of energy, if the energy unit was standardized then vehicles could exchange spent units for fresh ones, eliminating the whole waiting to charge issue.
Our design was well received capturing media attention in 2009 including international recognition as leaders in clean technology. We made great progress, working with automotive manufacturers first in Europe, having been selected as the battery system for a fleet of 12,000 electric taxis.
The 2010 European debt crisis took its toll on innovative projects and the program lost its funding. We still believe in what we call a Renewable Generation and the Joule system is another step in that direction.
Joule utilizes advanced energy dense lithium batteries and Joule Case provides the ability to transform how you use power. We have taken our original concept of Fuel 2.0™ and created a consumer focused system which will enable a future with Hybrid Homes™.
It is our deep desire to give a world changing product life. In doing so we believe Joule Case can change the lives of people around us and far away.
Joule is energy in motion and we want to empower positive change through the access to power.
We hope you’ll join us when we launch and as we grow, and together we can make a difference in the world around us.
