Prismattery

Prismattery is a Tallinn University of Technology spin-off company that specializes in design, engineering and manufacturing of custom battery packs and energy storage solutions. Our services include development and production of embedded BMS and electronics, charging systems, mechanical housing and interconnects. Our battery packs are designed with optimal size, capacity, voltage, operating temperature and range to meet the demands of different applications. We have also integrated solar panels into our energy solution, which means we can provide solutions for autonomous devices that can be operated without the need of being connected to the electric grid.

Prismattery is located in an innovation and entrepreneurship center called MEKTORY in the campus of Tallinn University of Technology. We have high level access to various different resources, know-how, facilities and equipment of the university.

Prismattery is a co-operation partner of various companies and organizations to provide value engineering regarding energy storage solutions of specific products and services.

Which other Creative Sectors has the SME worked with?
Design, Architecture

Which other Growth Sectors has the SME worked with?
Manufacturing, Technology

Were any relationships rewarding?

As a relationship that was particularly rewarding we would name a co-operation project for one of the candidates of EXPO2015 Estonian pavillion.

Additionally to getting an awarded place we gained much more from the project.

  • Getting knowledge and insights we didn’t have before
  • Finding new ways to use our technology, discovering new markets
  • Establishing a new co-operation model in helping develop our customer prototype
  • Cooperation with unusual partners
  • Crazy ideas, letting fantasy flow: e.g. button of a jacket that moves the giant mushroom
  • Participation in a very large project with various different partners (interior designers, architects, chefs, fashion designers)
  • Received special prize
How does the SME think it could benefit from other sectors' input?

First and foremost we would benefit from other sectors’ input by establishing new and innovative ways to implement our energy harvesting and storage technology. We could develop together cross-sector products and services, we could find new possibilities for user-interface and reach advanced level of user friendliness. Using state of the art design approach and leading-edge materials we could co-create new solutions or even new markets. Needless to say that technically oriented engineers might be lacking some of the skills and approaches that could be complemented by various different creative sector designers.

What can the SME offer other sectors?

Our main benefit to other sectors would be helping to expand their market and business opportunities.

We can offer a wide set of skills from various backgrounds and competences from electronics, power engineering, mechatronics, product development and business development. We combine years of experience from public and private sector, from engineering corporations to small start-ups.

We are a Tallinn University of Technology spin-off and we have high level access to various different university resources, know-how, facilities and equipment.

Our experience so far includes:

  • Creating an energy harvesting and storage solution to power post/parcel machine
  • Developing a battery pack for sea monitoring buoy that obtains energy from the sun
  • Adding energy storage solution to a regular bike to power it
  • Developing a 12m high monument’s mechanics and solution to power it with solar energy
  • Concept for a complete solution including energy storage and electric propulsion system for a boat
To what extent would the SME be prepared to share information?

We are ready to openly brainstorm and co-create ideas for the co-operation platform. We would share information in an extent required to integrate our solutions with the partner platform.

How would the SME describe its potential for cross innovation?

The core of our business is to work together with our customers therefore potential for cross innovation is huge. We have already been involved in various different projects with parties from different sectors. For example, working together with architects and fashion designers creating moving structures that could be controlled by captive clothes.

Out of the 11 Cross Innovation Partner Cities, are there any particular cities with which the SME would like to form a new relationship?
Amsterdam, Berlin, Linz, Rome, Stockholm

Are there any particular organisations outside the SMEs home country, with which it would like to connect?

Our most recent project involves energy storage and electric propulsion system for marine electric vehicles (e-boats). Regarding marine industry we would be particularly interested in co-operation regarding Berlin, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Rome, Linz but this list is definitely not limiting. Our ambition is to map these markets and to co-create a value proposition.

More particularly we would be interested in contact with:

  • Netherlands Electric Boating Association,
  • Reeuwijk UK Electric Boat Association, Reading, Berkshire
