Nick Barter is appointed a director of Ultramo

14 June 2011

Cleantech startup Ultramo has appointed Nick Barter as a director of the company. Ultramo is working on what could prove to be the world’s most efficient engine, featuring the ‘Ultramo cycle’, which reduces heat loss, significantly reduces engine running costs and halves CO2 emissions. Early models are suitable for stationary applications where there is a constant load. The Ultramo design will run on multiple fuels, including sustainable and carbon-neutral fuels.

Dr Barter’s engineering and managerial career spans nearly 50 years, including the last eight years as non-executive director for Torotrak, a developer of energy efficient transmission technology. Here he has helped to transfer innovative technology from the drawing board to commercial success. Dr Barter also works with the Technology Strategy Board on its steering group for the Low Carbon Vehicle Innovation Platform and has a wealth of experience on financing emerging technologies.
 

Calling upon experience gained at Jaguar Land Rover and Torotrak, Dr Barter will be helping Ultramo with the design, build and testing of its engine, as well as advising on technology licensing, securing investment and overcoming barriers to growth.
