Presentation Summary

  • Energy up to 200 µJ per event using post-stamp sized active materials (plus magnets)
  • Efficient even with extremely slow movements: up to 1 hour (as well as fast, of course)
  • Non-contact: remote activation, through walls, no harsh point /no wear /no noise.
  • Simultaneous energy harvesting AND event detection

Speaker Biography (Jerome Delamare)

Company Profile (EnerBee)

EnerBee logo
EnerBee is a technology transfer project developed by an interdisciplinary team from Grenoble University (Grenoble INP, CEA LETI, Joseph Fourier University and CNRS) localized at MINATEC, France.
EnerBee harvesters emerge from microtechnologies studies transposed to the centimeter scale.
Our patented technology can harvest energy from displacement with no time dependence: Timeless Harvesters.
EnerBee is as efficient with very slow movements as with high speed displacements. Translations and/or rotations can be harvested contactlessly, with no cogging effect.
EnerBee know-how includes both harvesters and Power Management System. Stamp-sized prototypes can supply proprietary or custom wireless transmissions (Ultra Wide Band, ZigBee Green Power, EnOcean ...).
