Enedym Inc. Announces Strategic Partnership with Smartricity Inc. to Develop the Ventium Wind Pitch Switched Reluctance Motor (“SRM")

Share

Enedym Inc. (“Enedym”),a technology company that develops next generation switched reluctance motors (SRMs), electric propulsion, and electrified powertrains, today announced a strategic partnership with Smartricity Inc. (“Smartricity”), a smart industrial electric motor and software company. The partnership will help deliver next generation wind pitch motors and related technology to materially increase efficiency, performance, and cost-effectiveness.

Utilizing Enedym’s unique SRM technology, Ventium – whose nameis a combination of the Latin words for wind (Ventus) and power (Imperium) – increases the reliability and efficiency of wind turbines, which leads to an increase in energy production. Over time, increased wind energy production will displace fossil fuel electricity generation, resulting in significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, increased efficiency of wind turbines reduces the cost of wind energy, making investments in clean wind energy more attractive. Enedym and consortium partner Smartricity, were recently awarded $2.4 million by Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) to commercialize and advance the Ventium wind pitch motor technology.

As part of the collaboration, Enedym and Smartricity will work to maximize the contribution that wind energy can make by addressing a major weakness in turbines: low availability and capacity factor due to unreliable and outdated wind pitch drive systems in 1.X-2.X MW models. The pitch systems in the 1.X-2.X are one of the largest contributors to turbine downtime, with studies showing over 30% of failures directly related to these systems.

Dr. Ali Emadi, Founder, President, and CEO of Enedym said, “We are pleased to announce this agreement with Smartricity and jointly reach our goal to ensure wind power infrastructure can run more efficiently, reliably, and economically. Global appetite for clean energy is projected to accelerate dramatically, both to reduce reliance on foreign fossil fuel-based power generation and to ensure geo-political risks are reduced. We are eager to partner and work with Smartricity, industry leaders, and renewable energy companies to drive the innovation that will move us towards a greener and more secure future.”

Michael Sonsogno, Co-Founder and CEO of Smartricity, said, “Smartricity has built an arsenal of revolutionary motor technologies from around the world and paired it with our team’s expert application knowledge to address major weaknesses in the Renewables, HVAC, Mining, Oil and Gas, and Industrial Manufacturing industries. In the Wind Pitch application, SRM was the clear winner when combined with our real-world field insights to produce the Ventium Wind Pitch SRM.”

Emendo Biotherapeutics’ next generation CRISPR gene editing technologies achieve breakthrough results with allele-specific approach for ELANE -related Severe Congenital Neutropenia as presented at ASGCT Annual Meeting17.5.2022 22:15:00 CEST | Press release

Emendo Biotherapeutics presented the results of its next generation CRISPR-based gene editing approaches for several indications in an oral presentation and three posters at the 25th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) held May 16-19, 2022, in Washington, D.C. Emendo presented pre-clinical data for the treatment of ELANE-related Severe Congenital Neutropenia using an allele-specific editing approach, demonstrating the power of Emendo’s dual technology platforms that enable the development of a highly specific editing composition that demonstrates no off-targets and complete allele specificity. Significantly, the lack of off-target achieved by Emendo’s engineered and optimized OMNI nuclease also eliminated any translocations. Edited patient derived CD34+ cells differentiated normally into neutrophils both in-vitro and in-vivo, showing full engraftment and reconstitution of all blood lineages, as required for the desired therapeutic effect. “ELANE-based
