A unique approach
Co-founded in 2019 by entrepreneurs Archie Watts-Farmer, Francis Lempp and Nadiur Rahman, Carnot is developing game-changing power units with twice the efficiency, half the fuel consumption & zero CO2 emissions. Currently large/long-haul applications, responsible for 50% of global transport CO2 emissions, have no alternatives to diesel engines. For 130 years, engines have wasted a third of fuel energy to cooling systems. Carnot has eliminated this wasted energy by re-thinking, re-designing and revolutionising the internal combustion engine to bring it into the 21st Century.
Carnot has a 3-year R&D-focused strategy to generate IP and run an ultra-efficient prototype before licensing our IP to high-volume manufacturers and end-users. With a 35% reduction in total cost of ownership, the value proposition is compelling not only to end-users but also to manufacturers, enabling them to charge premiums and drive up margins.
