What is the EnABLES project?
By 2025, there will be an estimated one billion IoT devices worldwide, all of which need to be powered. The project aims to eliminate the need for battery replacement wherever possible through the use of Energy Harvesting solutions and to find ways to significantly reduce device power consumption. The EnABLES project involves hundreds of researchers and developers working to advance Energy Harvesting, storage and micro-power management solutions for the integrated design and deployment of miniaturized autonomous sensors. The EnABLES offer ranges from technologies and simulation models to the design of devices and systems. The EnABLES institutes support stakeholders and IoT developers and manufacturers to accelerate the adoption of this technology in real-world applications.
The institutes offer their know-how and infrastructure for the development of »self-sufficient« sensor solutions. Based on the areas of Energy Harvesting, energy storage, micro-power design, power management and system integration, the project will provide free access to simulations, laboratories and expertise (e.g. in concept and feasibility studies). Through the so-called Transnational Access (TA) program, which was published in July 2018, cooperation between interested companies and the EnABLES institutes will take place in a simple and fast way.
