Piezoelectric materials are strategic for energy harvesting applications.
In fact, the direct piezoelectric effect makes it possible to convert vibratory mechanical energy into electrical energy.
With the developments of IoT and Industry 4.0, the need for sensors is increasing day by day and making them autonomous has many advantages.
As vibrations are present in many areas of industry, piezoelectricity makes it possible to harness and benefit from this energy.
PYTHEAS Technology develops vibratory energy harvesting solutions adapted to many fields: Rail, Air & Space, Industry, allowing the supply of autonomous sensor networks from ambient vibrations.
PYTHEAS Technology develops also a non-rotating hydrokinetic turbine generating electricity from the setting in vibration of piezoelectric elements by sea currents or rivers.
This system makes it possible to generate electricity even from weak currents (from 0.8m/s), making relevant sites where the currents are too low for conventional hydrokinetic turbines.
