Enerbee, the company that developed a microgenerator to enable self-powered connected objects, raised €2.5 million in capital in March.
Enerbee’s unique technology, combining magnetic and piezoelectric materials, makes it possible to harvest the energy from an object in motion, even if that motion is very slow or irregular. It leverages research conducted at Grenoble Institute of Technology, Leti, CNRS, and Grenoble-Alps University’s UJF School of Science. The technology is protected by five patents.
The company is testing the technology with several manufacturers and hopes to get its first mass-produced products to market by the end of 2016. The influx of capital—which will fund additional R&D and a new production line in the Grenoble area—will help make that happen!
