WISEPOWER srl is aimed at the design and prototyping of a new class of energy generators for mobile devices.
This idea originates from the discovery, made in the university laboratory, of a new technology that significantly improves the performances of a wide class of electric power generators. Based on this new technology and on the long-standing experience of the inventors in research activities, they decided to give birth to a company aimed at applying this technology to designing micro energy generators for mobile devices.
Mobile electronic devices are energy hungry and the standard existing solutions, i.e. batteries, present a number of back draws like large size and heavy weight, finite life-time, high costs.
WISEPOWER srl has developed a new approach to solve the energy needs of mobile electronic devices: extraction of energy from the ambient when and where is needed. Specifically, WISEPOWER srl has developed a new and innovative technology for the energy-conversion, based on the use of non-linear dynamics applied to physical systems. Vibrational, light, heat energies, to name a few, are harvested from the ambient and converted into the electric energy available for powering electronic devices.
In the week in which Europe promotes the use of sustainable energy, or those energies that respect the environment, the NIPS laboratory at the University of Perugia organized a day to raise awareness on the role of micro-energy (www.microenergyday . eu).
The Micro-energies are those energies which are needed every day to accomplish many of the habitual actions such as making a call on our cell phone, listen to a song with the MP3 player, switch the appliance hearing, maintain the pacemaker, ...
Among the projects selected by the experts at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation and invited to attend the first meeting of June 22-26 there is also " Micro and Nano Energy Harvesting " which has as its referent dr. Helios Vocca, Researcher and R&D Director of the Wisepower. The main goal of our work is the invention, design and prototipation of a new class of micro-powering systems for the energy consumption of stand-alone micro-electronic apparata like sensors or actuators.
During the final leg of the tour TechGarage Digital Energy Tour on 20th Febbrary, it was assigned the special "Siamosoci Award" to three of the 10 finalists.
For SiamoSoci the most promising ideas of this year have been Wisepower, Be Smart, Sustainable Hosting. With the assignment of the "Premio SiamoSoci" officially it is opened the collaboration between the web platform where startups meet potential investors and Barcamper, when looking for talent on the Italian territory, a crucial step to create young businesses.
Wisepower is among the finalists selected during the startup TechWeek, the path that has involved more than 150 people who presented their business ideas in the fields of energy efficiency and smart grid dell'efficieza and ending with the TechGarage, national event that involves all actors in the world of innovation.
Wisepower will attend the meeting of the Young Entrepreneurs Group of Confindustria Umbria, public part, which will be held Friday, January 31, 2014 at "The Valley of Assisis Resort" loc. Santa Maria degli Angeli (PG).
At this meeting there will be the birth of the group Confindustria Young Entrepreneurs Umbria and the election of its president.
There is also Wisepower among the 20 companies selected by the Digital Energy Tour on board the Barcamper.
From January 27 to 31 in Terni, we will be to participate in the TechWeek, a week of intensive training on entrepreneurship during which we will delve into the ideas presented during the tour to transform them into business projects and will give national and international visibility by involving stakeholders, universities, research institutes and businesses.
Fuori Tg is a daily program of TG3 dealing with the issues that affect the lives of every day. In recent days, one of his crew visited the laboratories of Wisepower and in the episode of January 10 was aired on energy service that concerns us
The "Barcamper" is a project launched by the company that dPixel Ltd. under the patronage of the Ministry of Economic Development, Legambiente, GSE and Sviluppumbria promotes scouting for new businesses through one-on-one talks around Italy on board a colorful camper.
L. Gammaitoni and H. Vocca met Joseph Kovalik to discuss future collaboration with Wisepower Corp., a spin-off company of NiPS, based in Arcadia (CA). The meeting was held in Pasadena, during a visit to Caltech.

Wisepower in collaboration with NiPS Laboratory has developed a new iPhone App that allow users to store, upload and share acceleration time series acquired with their device.
The acceleration time series will be uploaded on the RealVibration Database as part of the NANOPOWER (Nanoscale energy management for powering ICT devices) EU Project.
