Leader in Integrated ICT Hardware & Systems




The vision of EnABLES is to create ‘self-sustaining’ energy solutions to ‘power the internet of things’ based on energy harvesting, storage, micro-power management and system integration activities. Free of charge access to simulations, data libraries, equipment and expertise access along with feasibility studies will be provided in a fast-track manner via a Transnational Access (TA) program that will be launched shortly. It also funds Joint Research Activities (JRAs) between partners.

The world will have 1 trillion IoT devices by 2025 all needing a power source. We should avoid battery replacement where possible by developing energy harvesting solutions and/or finding ways to reduce device power consumption. EnABLES will empower 100s of academic researchers and technologists. Access will range from materials & models to devices and systems. Access providers will work with the user community to accelerate adoption and innovation in real-life applications.

Activities include:

  • Building an ecosystem for collaboration with EnABLES as a ‘starting community’.
  • Providing external fast track access to expertise and laboratories – over 130 researchers & €2Bn of infrastructure
  • Fostering internal collaboration between partners (JRAs) guided by needs and opportunities
  • Creating standardised and inter-operable libraries of parts & simulation tools for optimising system level performance
