SKYNJA launches at Babson Energy Conference

(BOSTON—May 25, 2010)  SKYNJA — the Social Energy Network start-up recently heralded by Governor Deval Patrick on Entrepreneurship Day at the Cambridge Innovation Center — launches its website, company platform and action-plan at the Babson College Energy & Environmental Conference:  Sustainability in Action on Thursday, March 25, 2010.

At the Babson conference, smart-energy focused attendees will learn the latest news about sustainability efforts and related private sector endeavors to advance sustainable lifestyle choices.  Academics, sustainability professionals, venture capitalists, and students alike will converge upon the Babson campus to share ideas and promote sustainability and efficient energy use.

“We recognize that electricity is good, but we can make it better!,”  exclaimed Edison Almeida, founder and CEO of SKYNJA.  “The environmental impact of electricity consumption is usually out of the sight and minds of most people.  On average, 90% of our electricity comes from non-renewable energy sources, which harm the environment. That’s why SKYNJA is committed to bringing awareness and solving the problem.”

A further testament to SKYNJA’s recent success and growth is its new partnership with the Renew America Roadtrip and LittleFoot Energy programs, which have brought an all-electric Tesla Roadster, zero-emission luxury sports car to the Babson conference, promoting energy-efficient lifestyle.

“When I learned about Michael Craner’s initiative, I was amazed!  Green Heroes like Michael show how much we can do today. We need to tell their stories. Sustainability is everybody’s responsibility,” Edison added.  SKYNJA invites everybody to share their stories and become a Green Hero on www.skynja.com by Earth Day, April 22nd, 2010.

Pioneering electric-vehicle cross-country driver to visit California Auto Museum

Sacramento, CA – This Tuesday afternoon, October 20, 2009, Michael Craner, co-founder of the Renew America Roadtrip (RAR) project, will be on-hand at the California Auto Museum’s Going Green exhibit to meet and greet visitors, discuss America’s first green, charity drive cross country in an-all electric vehicle, autograph official RAR merchandise and talk about the upcoming charity auction of the car that made it all possible - RAR’s gorgeous white Tesla Motor’s Roadster (the “RAR’dster”).

 

Owner and co-driver of the RAR’dster, the first production all-electric sportscar to cross America under its own power, Mr. Craner will also be presenting some rare roadtrip-related footage and discussing preliminary plans for a new national solar initiative.

 

The RAR’dster is a two-seat, convertible, zero-emission, pure-electric, high-performance luxury sportscar with an uncompromising 0-60 of 3.9 secs, top speed of 125 mph, 244 mile range per charge, and energy-sipping 125 mpg equivalent efficiency.  Loaned to the museum following completion of the cross-country trip, the RAR’dster has been on display since September 04, 2009 as part of CAM’s permanent Going Green exhibit.

 

“The RAR’dster has been a welcome addition to our Going Green exhibit and an excellent modern-day compliment to our other classic alternative-fuel vehicles.  The multimedia presentation that accompanies the RAR’dster exhibit is synergistic with our mission of educating and entertaining the public about the automobile and its place in our lives and we are excited to have Mr. Craner make a personal appearance to further this mission,” notes Amanda Moss, Curator for the museum.

“The folks at CAM have done an excellent job of utilizing the RAR’dster to continue to reach visitors with the RAR message that each of us can make a difference and if we want to see a better future for ourselves and our children, we need to get up, get out there, and do something!  I am happy to take some time try to reach out to anyone that is willing to listen to the story of what we did, what others are doing, and what they themselves can do.  The key is to find a niche and help.  And honestly, I miss the little RAR’dster, so the staff better watch me and make sure I don’t just jump in and drive it back to Pennsylvania with me!”

 About the Renew America Roadtrip™ - The Renew America Roadtrip™ is “America’s first green charity drive coast-to-coast in a production all-electric sportscar.” It was a media event designed to help raise awareness of renewable, sustainable, and eco-friendly (RSE) initiatives and raise money for charities.
