Growing light.

Natural energy exclusively from the plants biochemical processes.

We power your devices with green solutions.

In 2016 a research team of botanists and engineers from University of Pavia, discovered some amazing electric properties of the plants.

Further experiments led them to develop prototypes that power different electronic devices, purely exploiting biological processes.

Nowadays Voltaplant is the first italian startup that aims to spread worldwide this revolutionary technology and provide clean and unlimited energy harvesting.

Energy performances for each plant

GREEN ENERGY SOLUTIONS

TECHNOLOGY

THE PLANT

Among all the plants existing in nature, our botanists identified the species that are more prone to emanate electrical charges through natural biochemical processes.
They belief that their research activities will extend the classification of these exceptional species.

THE ELECTRONIC BOARD

The electronic board designed by the team generates a continuous and high-performance current, able to better manage this type of energy harvesting.

THE PMFC CELL

The Plant Microbial Fuel Cell technology allows to capture the electrical charges dissipated by plants.

ELECTRONIC DEVICES

The electricity supplied by the electronic system can be used for any appliance that meets
the electric voltages specifications.

We power batteryless
