Ethanol Generator Sets “Zero Carbon” solution for replacing diesel gensets VSE Solution Competitive Positioning “Zero Carbon” energy generation Expected Competitiveness in areas with ethanol production and/or incentives. Target Market and Applications Family of ethanol motor generators from 250 to 1,000 kW 1 st generation of 300kW genset is commercially available now 2 nd generation will expand power range and provide technical improvements Replacement of diesel gensets in stationary applications (power generation and mechanical drive) Customer demand for energy safety (continuous generation and standby), and cost reduction (peak)
VSE Ethanol Generator Set is certified by ABNT according to ISO 8528.
Modify diesel engines to work with bio-fuel for agricultural and industrial applications. Two main alternatives can be considered: 1 - Maintain diesel cycle including a ethanol / E85 PFI system and using a small pilot diesel to start ignition; 2- Change to Otto cycle removing whole diesel system and add an Ethanol system.
Alternative 1 : Compression Ignition
Alternative 2 : Spark Ignition
VSE HYBRID SYSTEMS Integrated systems for transportation, based on sustainable solutions and processes, contributing to a better world. World-class in innovation and development of state-of-the-art technologies. Focus on environmental sustainability and the use of renewable energy sources

(% hybrid vehicles/new vehicles sales)... creates opportunity for suppliers of hybrid propulsion systems Beginning of the hybridization process Government with a key role by offering incentives and subsidies (e.g. subsidies in the U.S. and England, Tax exemption in Japan) Growing presence of heavy hybrid vehicles in the world Local Market Brazil plays a distinct role in heavy vehicles market (4 th largest producer with 5% of global production) Players Reaction Players, including automakers, are developing hybrid solutions with own structure or through partnerships MIT - Ligth Trucks
Hybrid Driveline Systems VSE Solution Hybrid driveline systems for heavy vehicles (driveline is composed of a combustion engine, electric engine, generator, battery, inverter and control system). Global trend of vehicle hybridization motivated by fuel prices, environmental concerns and urbanization Focus on “Stop & Go” applications (urban buses and delivery trucks) – regenerative braking cycle Potential expansion to other markets and applications. Bio Fuel flexibility (ethanol), reduction in fuel consumption and maintenance costs, with lower emissions and noise. Target Markets and Applications
Energy Storage Traction Motor Generator Power Electronics Internal Combustion Engine VSE HYBRID SYSTEMS Potential markets have been identified through market studies, in order to develop capability for various market segments and to meet demands and critical needs for the next generation technology. Decisions based on market trends, state of the art technology and cost/benefits.
