 Project objective

Every day, we use products that have buttons, are moved around, and sit in the sunlight. We provide energy, but it’s wasted. Our company, Zolitron Technology, designs micro power supplies that charge themselves. We RETROFIT existing products and design new products using these energy autonomous devices (EADs). With the EAD, we provide reliable energy for billions of potentially autonomous applications in home, industry, and medical use. We’re removing batteries from wireless electronics.

Harvesting energy for powering devices is already a 1.1billion dollar market and expected to grow five times over the next six years. Low power energy harvesting, in particular, has yet to be well integrated with existing electronics.

Our team has backgrounds in ultra-low power electronics from MIT and next generation solid state batteries from Harvard and RUB.

With this grant, we plan to hire an expert in Tribo-Electric-Nanogenerators (TENGs). TENGs harvest energy from friction, comparable to static electricity being generated when rubbing fur on an inflated balloon. Through carefully designed TENGs, most movement can be translated into friction and energy can be generated. Z.L. Wang from Georgiatech University published groundbreaking work on such generators, but other groups around the world build up on his research.

Since the TENGs require sophisticated energy management circuitry in the EAD, an electrical engineer, mechanical engineer or materials scientist is required to integrate TENGs into the EAD.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "TENGEAD" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
