Hannover Messe 2018
On the upcoming Hannover Messe from April 23rd to 27th we're presenting the current prototypes of our thermoelectric generators. Come visit us at booth K51 in hall 27.
Home & Smart
The Smart Home industry is looking for low-cost Energy Harvesting solutions, following otego's development with great interest.
Finals of the Elevator Pitch Competition
After winning the semi-finals in Karlsruhe, we were now successful during the finals of the Elevator Pitch Baden-Wuerttemberg competition in Stuttgart. As third best start up we share the podium with our friends from GoSilico and Ruedenauer 3D Technology.
otego goes Bellevue
The German Federal President Joachim Gauck is excited about printed TEGs as well - happened during the week of environment 2016 at his residence Bellevue. A great push of motivation for us!
IDTechEx Europe Energy Harvesting Conference 2016
Our booth at the IDTechEx Europe Energy Harvesting Conference 2016 in Berlin was so popular that we ran out of business cards. But our new demonstrator showed great persistence.
otego at the Hannover Messe 2016
It was so close that the US President Barack Obama visited our stand at the Hannover Messe after his opening speech. Still an interesting trade show and lots of visitors at the otego booth in cooperation with the Helmholtz Gemeinschaft.
LOPEC 2016 Best Business Case Award
We won the "Best Business Case Award" at the LOPEC Conference 2016 for printed electronics and we feel explicitly honoured. There will definitely be a special place for this trophy in our office.
Scale11, Startups @ CeBIT 2016
...of course we were there, too. At the joint start up booth of the Helmholtz Gemeinschaft we were able to show, how future wireless sensors of the Internet of Things can make good use of heat energy.
otego wins Science4Life concept-phase
The concept-phase of the Science4Life competition 2016 is over and otego belongs to the group of lucky winners! We are looking forward to the next phase of the competition.
Green Innovation and Investment Forum
The next award was waiting for us at "Green Innovation and Investment Forum", in short GIIF 2016. It was a great opportunity to pitch in front of investors that are all dedicated to sustainability and green technologies.

International Conference on Organic Thermoelectrics
It was a must of course for otego to participate in the first international expert-meeting for printed thermoelectric generators at the ICOT 2016 in Kyoto, Japan.
otego in the Finals of Elevator Pitch BW
In November we were very happy to win the regional semi-finals of the startup contest Elevator Pitch Baden Württemberg. Now we are prepping for the finals in 2016, where we are going to pitch against all other regional winners.
CyberChampions Award 2015
During the festive award show of the CyberChampions Award in November 2015 otego was acknowledged with the coveted innovation award.
New lab facility ready for operation
Finally it is all set for our future chemical experiments. From Oktober 2015 on the material development of otego is taking place at the incubator of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
That's otegoTechnology in Detail
Conventional TEG are very expensive and therefore uncompetitive due to rare as well as toxic materials and complex production processes. The otego-technology makes use of inexpensive organic semiconductors (electrically conductive polymers) and processes them in large scale industrial production machines. This combination leads to a competitive price of TEGs for the first time. And moreover the use of polymers (plastics) confer superior mechanical, thermal and electrical properties to the generators. And they are only the size of a sugar cube.
There have never been as flexible and as all-round TEGs then otego's. They can even be mounted on round surfaces like pipes! This is a handy feature since pipes are often an ideal heatsource.
Vibration and shocks are unable to harm otego-TEGs. The TEGs are made of elastic materials and therefore meet the requirements for rough industrial environments.
otego is convinced that heavy metals like lead and tellurium have no place in consumer or professional electronics. Therefore otego-TEGs are only made of nontoxic materials, that allow for an eco-friendly disposal.
A technology is only of little use, if it comes with astronomical costs. By using earth abundant and inexpensive materials that can be processed on large scale printing machines, otego will be the first manufacturer to meet the industry's price point.
