Hexagonal Distributed Embedded Energy Converter (HexDEEC)

Research output: NRELPoster


Hexagonal Distributed Embedded Energy Converters are relatively small, centimeter scale, energy transducers that leverage variable capacitance to generate electricity when their hyperelastic structure is dynamically deformed. A multitude of HexDEECs can be woven to form construction materials that can be used to build complete energy conversion structures, such as ocean wave energy converters.
