At the Work Truck Show 2013, eNow Inc., based in Warwick, RI, highlighted the benefits of its renewable energy management systems which receive power from solar panels, as well as other environmentally-friendly technologies.

Unlike traditional auxiliary power units (APU), the eNow system receives energy from the power grid, an alternator, regenerative braking and proprietary solar panels. As the company develops the technology further, it intends to also provide power to the APU using exhaust recovery systems, regenerative shock absorbers, CO2 recovery and wind.
