Taranaki Field Deployment Update & Video

In April-June 2022, Emrod deployed its power beaming prototype system in the field for the first time. The field testing was completed in Taranaki, New Zealand, and enabled by partners, Ara Ake, New Zealand’s national new energy development centre, and Powerco, New Zealand’s second-largest energy distributor.

Moving out of the lab and into the field is a significant milestone for Emrod. We were able to test and improve key components of our beam shaping and beam steering technology, power density levels, safety system and technology that we use for measuring and testing antenna performance. The learnings are being incorporated into the engineering our next system which will deployed in the field in 2023. 

Thank you to our demonstration partners:
