Presentation Summary

  • A "bolt-on", future proof solution to range anxiety
  • Multi-fuel capability - including hydrogen, ethanol and bio diesel
  • Clean combustion without catalytic converters
  • Small size, ultra light weight and no water or oil
  • Very quiet running with no vibration
  • Low cost!
 
In 2010, Bladon Jets has announced a partnership with Jaguar Land Rover to develop a mini turbine fitted to electric cars that charges batteries on the go. Bladon Jets is leading a consortium that has been awarded funding from the UK Government's Technology Strategy Board to develop this Ultra Light Range Extender ULRE, bringing it to market before any other in the world.

Speaker Biography (Paul Barrett)

Paul Barrett is executive chairman and co-founder of Bladon Jets - one of the world's leading micro gas turbine development companies. Paul is technical innovator and a serial entrepreneur. His previous ventures have mostly been in the field of IT security, where he is a recognized leader and has a number of patents granted in his name. He holds a BSc from Sussex University and an MSc from Oxford University.

Company Profile (Bladon Jets)

Bladon Jets' patented, breakthrough technology enables, for the first time, the production of small gas turbine engines that are lighter weight, less polluting and lower cost than reciprocating engines (sometimes called reciprosaurs) used in almost all cars and small planes today.
 
Since gas turbine engines will run on just about 
any type of fuel, including LPG and bio-fuels, they 
are not dependent on dwindling oil reserves. Unlike hydrogen where distribution is virtually non existent, fuels for gas turbine engines use existing distribution infrastructures.
