Capital Nature Startups
Capital Nature is a leading investment firm focused on funding and accelerating early stage ventures in the field of renewable energy. The joint venture between Eilat Eilot and Capital Nature led to the establishment of a technology incubator which is based in the Arava. Here, start ups are proved with continuous support and access to the technological, marketing and financial resources of Capital Nature investors.
Capital Nature’s test and validation site provides a fully serviced one stop shop for pilot projects, allowing start-ups to survive the transition between R&D and mass deployment of their technologies.
Here is a preview of the start-ups currently being supported by Capital Nature:
ElectRoad develops a unique technology that powers the vehicle wirelessly from the road while driving. Using Unique technology DWPT system (Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer) An electric vehicle can be mobile without the need for a battery, No need for charging and with zero emission.
Chakratec develops a patent protected flywheel concept that provides a stationary green energy storage solution with low capital cost and a disruptive low cost per cycle.
Roadix develops three-wheeler electric personal vehicles for the private and the municipal sector. The vehicle reduces costs, saves time and reduces traffic congestion while protecting the environment.
SolView is a software startup company providing advanced tools for solar sales targeting. SolView has developed an innovative automated solar potential assessment and leads qualification tools and is providing a platform which helps solar professionals better target potential customers, increase conversion rates and reduce marketing and customer acquisition costs.
AUGWIND offers a breakthrough technology that utilizes solar energy to augment the intermittent wind energy. Augwind offers a solar augmented device that gets integrated to an existing wind turbine while utilizing the wind turbine power generating system while incorporating a novel power dispatchability technology. A quarterly report describes the performance of AUGWIND after installations of the compressed air storage tank in two factories. Two important issues result: the container cost is cheaper than the existing container and a marked reduction of 35-42% in power consumption of active power compressors to compress the air – an amazing statistic in energy efficiency in the industry!
BladeRanger created an autonomous robotic system for cleaning and inspecting solar fields, based on drones, robotic components and advanced algorithms.
TruckNet is a cloud-based transport optimization platform, which utilizes smart cargo exchanges in order to improve the efficiency and profitability of transport companies, while reducing costs and CO2 emissions.
The software is a collaborative solution that provides optimal adjustment between empty vehicles (trucks and buses) and the suitable transportation requests from different companies, using its patented algorithm.
Engage Technologies provides the first online service for autonomous software code generation for IOT devices, based on an existing product description. Provided software is generated within seconds rather than months of a human embedded programmer, and is based on a code generation engine that brings unparalleled security (patented), reliability, and minimized energy consumption.
Tamuz Energy develops an energy efficiency system that supplies industrial process solar heat. This technology can save significant costs of fossil fuels and the emission of pollutants. It can also be used in air conditioning and heating systems.
ZevaLED is developing a patent based led luminaire with unparalleled heat sync, as well flexible changing of any colors in a uniform no glare light.
Energo-On develops an online efficient uninterruptible power supply machine for power range between 20 to 1000 KW. The technology is based on hybrid energy storage that combines a rotating flywheel with hydraulic or electrical batteries. The system supplies continuously high quality power to the load even if the power source may fluctuate.
