Year founded: 2006
Etalim has developed a totally new type of physical device that generates several kW of electricity from heat with extraordinary efficiency and simplicity, by leveraging advances in thermo-acoustic physics. The Etalim TAC component is highly efficient (over 30 percent electrical), needs no maintenance over decades of operating life, is inexpensive to manufacture using standard metals and methods, and runs on virtually any fuel or heat source. The technology is now fully scaled and de-risked, and Etalim is in joint development with top global HVAC and automotive brands to commercialize the technology in billion-dollar clean energy markets for distributed residential co-generation (micro-CHP home appliances) and exhaust waste heat recovery on trucks, respectively. Etalim has five patents issued or pending.
