otego otego is developing novel thermoelectric generators (TEGs) as an energy harvesting solution for wireless sensors and actuators. TEGs convert heat directly into electricity as soon as they are brought into a temperature differential. They operate completely maintenance-free and can take advantage of even small temperature differences. otego has succeeded for the first time in combining low-cost materials with large-scale industrial production processes. Through otego's technology, TEGs will therefore finally be available for widespread mass applications. otego's immediate goal is for future wireless industrial sensors and IoT devices such as smart home heating valves to be powered autonomously by low-cost TEGs. In many networked small devices, troublesome battery changes could thus no longer be necessary in the future.
