CLEVELAND– Industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation has received the CALSTART 2008 Blue Sky Award for innovation and advancement in sustainable transportation technology. The annual award recognizes outstanding marketplace contributions to clean air, energy efficiency, and the clean transportation industry overall.

Eaton is the only manufacturer producing both hybrid electric and hybrid hydraulic systems, including the Hydraulic Launch Assist (HLA) parallel hybrid system. This breadth of technology was a driving force behind Eaton's winning the Blue Sky Award.

Customers using Eaton hybrid power systems in their fleets include FedEx Express, UPS, Coca-Cola Enterprises, PepsiCo, and Guangzhou Yiqi Bus Company. In addition, Peterbilt, Kenworth, International, and Freightliner currently offer Eaton diesel-electric hybrid drives as a production option in North America.
