Limitless Possibilities

Innovative Energy Harvesting for a Green IoT/IoE, the Metaverse and Smart Cities

 

Alpha Energy IoT Limited utilizes renewable energy, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, blockchain and nanotechnology to deliver the first one-time and auto-adjustable solar beacons, enabling a better customer experience, business analytics, and security for a green, sustainable and high-performance Internet of Things (IoT)/ Internet of Everything (IoE), the metaverse and smart cities. It maximizes light energy harvesting under multiple light sources and light-changing environments, up to 570% more compared to standard solar beacons. Alpha Energy IoT Limited is one of the awardees of the Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities (TSSSU) 2023/2024.

Our Story

We are a deep tech startup that spins off from the Social Media Lab, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2023. Our vision is to be a global leading Internet of Things (IoT)/Internet of Everything (IoE) solution provider using renewable energy, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, blockchain and nanotechnology. We are committed to provide the best products and services for our customers.
