Re-imagining the movement of energy

From wires to wireless

Pioneering power beaming technology

Since the industrial revolution, energy has been transmitted physically either as molecules through pipes and tankers or as electrons through wires. We believe that unshackling the physical connection between electricity generation and consumption will achieve a breakthrough in the energy industry similar to what wireless communications have done for the transfer of information.  

Over the last 4 years, Emrod has been pioneering the development of power beaming for commercial purposes. 


Achieving Commercial Viability

Emrod system works by converting electricity into electromagnetic energy, typically in microwave frequency, and directing it from a transmitter in a highly collimated beam to a receiver where it is rectified back into usable electricity.

A useful way to think about this would be a “virtual line” where energy moves from point to point through a narrow tightly controlled path.

To make power beaming commercially viable there are a number of technical challenges we had to overcome including achieving high efficiency, scalability, directivity and safety – and this has been the main focus of our team.

Revolutionising energy distribution

Just as wireless communications technology transformed the ability to share and use information, a breakthrough that impacted every industry, power beaming will transform the ability to utilize clean energy across industries. We are working with industry and government partners to develop Emrod’s technology for use cases that include:

  • Faster connection of renewable energy sources
  • Powering remote communities
  • Disaster recovery
  • Decarbonisation and electrification of industries with on-the-go charging
  • Space-based energy infrastructure, including Space-Based Solar Power
