POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2006 --
www.RenewableEnergyStocks.com and www.EnvironmentStocks.com, leading
investor and industry portals for the renewable energy and cleantech
sector, announce advanced alternative transportation developers ZAP (OTCBB: ZAAP) and Rotoblock Corporation (OTCBB: ROTB) as new featured companies.
With a focus on reducing harmful emissions and increasing efficiency as
they continue to develop and refine their technology offerings, both ZAP
and Rotoblock offer clean tech alternatives for consumer vehicles.
With the recent U.S. election resulting in the Democratic Party winning
control of Congress, many expect that issues such as reducing green house
gas emissions and strengthening energy independence will become even
greater legislative priorities moving forward. With the majority of the oil
used in the United States being attributed to the transportation sector,
alternative clean transportation technology has become a priority for
protecting the environment, lowering energy prices and reducing the
nation's dependence on foreign oil.
Despite the recent decline in gasoline prices, fuel costs remain high,
which continues to drive the demand for high-efficiency and cost-effective
vehicles. Providing consumers with alternatives is ZAP! (Zero Air
Pollution®) (OTCBB: ZAAP), a developer of advanced transportation
vehicles such as electric, fuel cell and hybrid cars, in addition to
electric bicycles, scooters and seascooters. ZAP is the only company to
market and sell their electric vehicles online, enabling them to take
advantage of the global market for clean alternatives. According to the
Company, ZAP vehicles can reduce CO2 emissions by more than 90 percent
compared to internal combustion vehicles, even counting the emissions from
fossil-fueled power plants.
"We believe electricity is the fuel of the future. With electricity to
power our transportation, our world can tap into renewable resources like
hydroelectric, solar, wind, or geothermal power, resources that lessen our
environmental footprint. Furthermore, studies show that millions of
electric vehicles can recharge at night using existing surplus electrical
generation, a vast, virtually untapped resource," describes ZAP Chief
Executive Officer Steven Schneider.
Rotoblock Corporation (OTCBB: ROTB), a technology development company
specializing in advanced propulsion systems, is focused on the continued
development and improvement of its patented energy efficient and
environmentally friendly, Oscillating Piston Engine (OPE), which releases
significantly reduced emissions into the atmosphere even with regular
In addition, the Rotoblock engine is up to 50% lighter than traditional
combustion engines, and is simpler to assemble, maintain and repair, making
it a highly adaptable design for a wide variety of uses and sizes. The
Company's strategy is to continue to develop this proprietary technology to
pursue licensing opportunities with particular focus on satisfying market
needs within India and China where infrastructures are not yet fully
developed, and the ease of maintenance and repair of the Oscillating Piston
Engine will be a key advantage.
This past summer, Rotoblock signed a development and license agreement with
Brazilian automotive company OBVIO! Automotoveiculos S.A., for the
development and incorporation of a more compact OPE for use with various
OBVIO! models. The terms of the agreement provides Rotoblock with
$5,000,000 million paid through a royalty structure on units sold. OBVIO!
is aiming to incorporate the Rotoblock engine into an ethanol hybrid drive
ZAP! is the exclusive North American distributor of OBVIO! alternative
vehicles, which will be coming to market in 2008, complimenting the
Company's existing portfolio of electric and hybrid transportation
