MIT Energy Initiative
In 2009, Total entered into a research agreement with The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Energy Initiative (MITEI), a program committed to working on complex energy challenges through multidisciplinary research activities. MITEI is investigating new stationary battery technology that could help expand the use of America's wind and solar power resources, increase the stability of the electric grid, and reduce blackouts by allowing large amounts of energy to be stored for future consumption.
In early 2015, Total & Navistar entered into an agreement to have Total be the only co-branded lubricant in partnership with Navistar, one of the largest international truck and bus manufacturers in the world. Their rich heritage extends over 150 years and includes iconic brands such as International Harvester, McCormick Harvesting and Deering Harvesting.
The partnership, which will include having Total produce and package FLEETRITE (Navistar’s private label lubricants) exclusively, will be introduced to all as FLEETRITE enginee.red by TOTAL. To highlight the global scale of this partnership, we will soon launch a similar program in Canada and discussions are underway with Brazil, Russia and New Zealand.
