Founded in 2009, in an effort to catalyze a new era of advances in thermoelectric materials, today, the company’s global headquarters and 7,900 square-foot manufacturing facility are located in Hayward, California. Leveraging nanotechnology research from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Michigan State University and with over 60 patents issued and filed, the company’s proprietary PowerBlocks™ thermoelectric material turns waste heat from exhaust into electricity and serves as the technology platform for the company’s waste heat recovery products. Customers in energy-intensive industries from oil & gas, mining, manufacturing, transportation, to defense use Alphabet Energy’s products to generate reliable remote power while also reducing fuel consumption, operating costs and carbon emissions.
Alphabet Energy has raised over $30 million in funding from venture capital and strategic investors, including TPG, Claremont Creek Ventures, CalCEF and Encana; and has received nearly $2 million in research funding from the U.S. Dept. of Energy, the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force.
