eProInn s.r.l. (Energy and Propulsion Innovation) is a Spin-Off of the University of Salerno, founded by a group of researchers working at eProLab (Energy and Propulsion Laboratory) in the Department of Industrial Engineering of the Salerno University
The primary scope is fostering the development and the industrialization of HySolarKit itself, the system to convert traditional cars into hybrid solar vehicles. More generally, the scope includes those aspects of green-economy related to energy and propulsion.
The kit, already applied on a FIAT Punto, can be applied to all conventional front-wheel drive vehicles. The investment costs are much lower than those for the purchase of a factory hybrid vehicle.
More generally, the main interests of eProInn include those aspects of the green economy related to energy and propulsion. In these fields, the researchers of eProInn have developed a long experience, with numerous industrial collaborations and projects and a wide network of partnerships both in national and international context, within contracts, research projects, European projects and bilateral agreements.
The HySolarKit project received the prestigious “Seal of Excellence” from the European Commission as an innovative project within the Horizon 2020 program. The European LIFE program, an instrument of the European community to support environmental protection initiatives, approved funding for the development of the SAVE (Solar Aided Vehicle Electrification) project. It is aimed at developing finished prototypes ready for industrialization (TRL = 9), and the establishment of a NewCo among the partners participating in the project.
eProInn’s headquarters are located in the L7 building in the Campus of Fisciano (map), which hosts the spin-off companies of the Salerno University. The building, inaugurated in January 2018, is equipped with innovative features in terms of energy and environmental management, certified by the LEED Platinum level.
eProInn is an official partner of the LIFE-SAVE project.
