DISTRIBUTECH International is the leading annual transmission and distribution event that addresses technologies used to move electricity from the power plant through the transmission and distribution systems to the meter and inside the home.
Reykjavik, Iceland - 24 Jan 2020 - Laki Power (www.lakipower.com), a leader in real-time surveillance for high-voltage powerline infrastructure, announced today that it will attend DISTRIBUTECH International, from January 28 - 30, 2020, held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX with BOOTH #1377.
“We’re delighted to be attending Distributech 2020 and look forward to meeting colleagues and customers," said Sigurjon Magnusson, CEO, "This year we will be demonstrating our power harvesting capabilities with an expanded range of high-value products and services that address the rapidly growing needs of power grid operators for real-time knowledge of system health and functionality.”
Laki Power’s unique products are powered by the only on-market energy harvester that supports multiple sensors and communications devices with full autonomy from external power sources, eliminating the need for solar, wind or diesel generators. The Company’s PowerGRAB™ technology harvests energy from the electromagnetic field surrounding the alternating current (AC) carrying phase wires of high voltage power lines to provide direct current (DC) power for running external and internal surveillance and monitoring devices, and many other applications that need clean and stable DC power.
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 hundred times more power than competitor solutions, offering unprecedented monitoring capacity and flexibility for a range of sensors and applications.
