The RePower project objectives are aligned with the work program of the envisaged topic call SMEInst-09-2016-2017: Industrial Leadership. The call is in line with the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge ‘Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy.
Waste and overconsumption of resources are major challenges in modern societies, as it leads to unnecessary environmental burdens and economic loss. To lower the loss, monitoring building health and energy consumption are of great importance to ensure that the technical installations and the building itself perform.
FROM IDEA TO REALITY
This video shows the ReMoni solution and how you can benefit from it.
The patented RePower solution delivers battery-less and maintenance-free sensors to wireless monitor e.g. buildings, powerlines or machines, by harvesting the energy from the outside of multicore power cables, without damaging the cable in any way.
The RePower’ed sensors can be either encapsulated directly with RePower, used as a separate component , or powering a sensor placed away from the power cable.
The novelty of RePower is a cost-efficient and flexible energy source for IoT sensors in places where no other energy harvester solutions are available today.
1. To help the growing IoT sector, improve its sustainability and promote job creation;
2. To strength the European position with a novel solution for solving the power issue of wireless sensors;
3. To minimize production failure and waste of energy – and thus increasing productivity;
4. By avoiding the use of batteries in the IoT sensors, RePower will also enable a positive environmental impact and lower the risk of fires due to short circuit lithium batteries, and thereby help avoiding further negative environmental and economic impact.
The development of RePower is co-funded by the European Union’s SME Instrument phase 1 and phase 2, under the H2020 programme. This program is considered the European Champions League for SMEs.
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 732582
