WASTE HEAT RECOVERY UNIT (WHRU)
Addressing Energy Efficiency in Industry
the waste heat Problem
The generation of energy has become a very important problem both from the economic and environmental point of view. Therefore, we need to create technologies and systems that are capable of creating clean energy to use it in the most efficient way possible.
Despite the efforts, the industry continues to be one of the sectors where there is a great margin for improvement in terms of energy efficiency. It is estimated that approximately 60% of the energy consumed is lost in heat (in waste heat), which has a huge economic and environmental impact.
Our Solution: electricity from waste heat
At AEInnova, we are Energy Harvesting experts and we are developing a range of solutions related to the generation of electricity from waste heat. Our patented technology combines the latest advances in heat and thermoelectric materials with a sophisticated microelectronic system able to provide always the maximum point tracker.
These solutions are aimed to improving energy efficiency and reducing the CO2 footprint of the industry, as well as expansion of the Industry 4.0 paradigm, converting waste heat into electrical energy. Without complicated installations nor expensive maintenance.
the pathway to Industry 4.0
Industries need to improve its monitoring processes. Wired sensing solutions require high investment costs wile battery-powered wireless sensing solutions have high maintenance costs, a high enviromental impact and are tipically not suitable for ATEX environments due to the explosion risk of lithium batteries.
Indu-Eye is a batteryless and wireless product that overcomes the traditional problems of IoT implementation in Industry 4.0
WASTE HEAT RECOVERY UNIT (WHRU):
addressing the industry energy efficiency
The WHRU uses an awarded technology capable to convert waste heat into clean CO2 negative energy. This family of products is capable to generate electricity from hot surfaces allowing injecting it into the electricity network for self-consumption, promoting circular economy and reducing CO2 royalty payments.
Top 20 Spanish Energy startups to be followed by corporates and investment funds in 2021 The energy transition has an economic potential of 8.7 trillion euros and 395 million jobs, of which the energy area could generate 87 million jobs and 3 trillion euros in the next decade. In fact, in the NextGeneration EU, the largest amount of the nearly 27 billion coming from the European coffers corresponds to the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge, which has the competencies in energy. Energy investment is rapidly shifting towards renewables. As a result, investment in oil and gas declined while […]
Publicación de la patente de AEInnova por parte de la Agencia de Patentes y marcas registradas por Estados Unidos AEInnova ha recibido la publicación de la patente de su sistema de generación eléctrica por termoelectricidad por parte de la Agencia de Patentes y marcas registradas por Estados Unidos durante el año 2021. El sistema patentado consiste en un sistema microelectrónico capaz de maximizar la energía eléctrica producida por un conjunto interconectado de celdas termoeléctricas. Actualmente, esta tecnología se aplica a dos productos: el Waste Heat Recovery Unit (WHRU), donde la energía generada se reinyecta a la red a la industrias […]
Mobile World Congress 2021 The Mobile World Congress has said goodbye this Thursday after four days and last year’s cancellation caused by the coronavirus outbreak. The celebration was made possible by health improvements on the European continent. However, the incidence of the pandemic and restrictions on mobility in other regions have forced the telecommunications and digital giants to withdraw. Even so, the organization, formed by GSMA, the Spanish government, the Catalonia government, and the Barcelona fair, has managed to pull off four days of conferences, debates, presentations, and exhibitions on the future of the technology industry in which challenges such […]
