MARCH 2022

New Logo
Yes, as you may have discovered, we’ve got a new logo. It symbolizes the temperature difference as the basis of our core competence within thermoelectric generators (TEG) and reflects our values of being trustworthy and professional.
New Funding Granted
It is with great honor that we have received another round of funding from the EU and Innovation Fund Denmark. The funding will help develop our project enhancing highly efficient thermoelectric modules based on nano-structured materials.

As the only company in the project consortium, TEGnology will work closely with four other research institutes in Europe to market the latest research results. The project will consolidate our company’s leading market position.
TEGnology will again offer a talk on THINGS eBazaar about Smart IoT. This time, the focus will be about adding intelligence to the data. The point is that the customers do not just need data. They also need information and guidance to executive actions that are buried in the data.
MARLOG – Beyond Beta
We have started a new journey with our new company TEGmat. TEGmat is a daughter company, solely owned by TEGnology, and it will be a cradle of innovation and new products of thermal energy harvesting. The Beyond Beta program, organized by MARLOG, offers a great opportunity to accelerate the business of our new company.

Energy Cluster Denmark (ECD) Innovation Network
The network program organized by ECD offers a good opportunity to meet people from across different market segments. Where principles apply, ideas are generated:
  •  Whomever comes, are the right people
  • Whenever it starts, is the right time
  • Whatever happens, is the only thing that could have happened

Besides sports she is active in different networks, member of advisory boards and the first female Chairman of the Board at The Norwegian Association in Denmark.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in strategic planning and organization, and has more than 20 years of hands-on experience with organizational and personal transformation based on involving, processes optimization and change management.



THINGS eBazaar® Smart Factory

Together with four other startups, TEGnology’s CEO Hao Yin presented as a speaker during the Things eBazaar event. Hao explained why we should, and how we could “Rethink Power Supply for Future IoT”, in terms of enabling process monitoring, predictive maintenance and process safety – all within the concept of Smart Factory. 
The video record will soon be available on THINGS’ YouTube channel. We thank the THINGS’ team and EFESO Consulting for organizing the event.

Partnership with e-peas in Belgium

TEGnology and e-peas are building a strategic partnership, based on both their own unique competitive advantages. TEGnology builds energy harvesting based applications with e-peas’ energy managers and ultra-low-power microcontrollers. TEGnology can also offer state-of-the-art thermoelectric generation modules for e-peas high-demanding customers.

Innovation Project Supported by Energy Cluster Denmark

In this issue, we would like to introduce you to our project DMIAS, under the scheme of “Fremme af innovation indenfor grøn energiteknologi (FIE)”. The project’s goal is to develop a product that contributes to energy savings during machine operation.

Optimizing energy consumption for machinery requires large volumes of sensor data. Unlike existing sensors, those sensors developed in the project will be autonomous, requiring no batteries, battery changes or power cables. This will make the service and installation inexpensive, minimize the interruption of the ongoing production, also bring predictive maintenance to a new level. These combined characteristics make the product appealing for industrial use.

The project was carried out in collaboration with Aarhus University and Alfa Laval. The planned activities ended in Dec., 2021. We are currently in the process of demonstrating and validating the product.

Team Members’ Corner, Sales Director, Jörg Rehder
Jörg was born and grew up near Hamburg in Northern Germany. He has always had a close connection to Scandinavia, spending camping and sailing vacations here, fascinated by the unique northern light and laid-back mentality of the region.

After a year studying in Sweden and finalizing his MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) studies in Germany, Jörg moved to Denmark in 1998 along with his at tha time girlfriend Meike, who later became his wife. They have two teenagers and two cats, and live in an old “murermestervilla”, an old villa, in Virum 15 km north of Copenhagen.

While the enthusiasm for sailing declined, he fulfilled his wish to own a boat by buying a family-sized canoe instead, which they often use on the lakes near Virum. The family still enjoys camping quite a lot, and spends their summer vacations in Scandinavia, as well as in Southern Europe. In Italy, Jörg’s passion for a Fiat 500 from the 1960s was triggered and evolved into a serious hobby. He also spends many weekends cruising around in the yellow Bubble car together with other fans, driving wedding couples or maintaining the shape and functionality of the car in his carport at home.
