ABOUT US

ABOUT LAKI POWER

Laki Power was founded in 2015 to transform the way line monitoring is carried out for transmission system operators (TSOs) and distribution system operators (DSOs), by bringing to market new technology that dramatically enhances the level of power that can be efficiently harvested from high voltage lines.

Electrical transmission and distribution systems worldwide span millions of kilometres. Yet despite carrying huge amounts of energy, tapping into that energy, to provide monitoring devices with power in the remote places that these lines cross, has remained a persistent challenge. Instead these systems have relied on local fossil fuel generators, wind turbines, solar cells or power from the line that requires a mini-substation to adapt voltage and power levels for proper utilization. This results in very high costs of installing, maintaining and resupplying these systems ,as well as a host of other environmental, operational, logistical and maintenance issues.

Laki Power's patent pending technology can harvest up to one hundred times more power than competitor solutions, offering unprecedented monitoring capacity and flexibility for a range of sensors and applications.
