Altenera is a part of MIPS program

Altenera as a part of MIPS program starting 2014. The Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) program accelerates the commercialization of technology in MD by jointly funding collaborative R&D projects between companies and Maryland University (UMD) System.

The MIPS program in conjunction with the Energy Harvesting and Renewable Energies Laboratory (PEHREL) at the UMD provide the financial, scientific and technical support needed to bring the BreezBee® wind panel closer to a commercial state through a cost-effective R&D collaboration. The Altenera envisages collaboration with UMD to design and develop power electronic interfaces that will be used in the final versions of the commercial-ready version of the panel-system prototype.
