Transforming Motion with Electrostatic Motors.

C-Motive Technologies is the only company commercializing sustainable, high-efficiency, and decarbonized motor technology using static principles for stationary industrial and e-mobility applications.

C-Motive Technologies is a venture-backed cleantech startup creating sustainable and highly efficient motor technology. Our machine functions using static electricity, removing the need for rare earth materials and limiting copper use to a bare minimum. C-Motive’s unique electrostatic motor technology delivers the highest efficiency and torque density for stationary industrial and e-mobility applications, all while reducing carbon emissions.

C-Motive has designed a sub-5 kW (7 hp) industrial motor platform designed for direct drive applications where high efficiency and high torque lead to substantial operational savings. A 1.5 kW (2 hp) C-Motive machine could save up to $1,400 a year in energy costs in a typical industrial application. Our patent protection is diverse, worldwide, and comprehensive; C-Motive owns 15 patents granted and applications, has exclusively licensed an additional 12 patents from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is currently pursuing 20 additional patents, and has over 50 trade secrets.

Have an application that needs the world’s best low-speed, high torque electric machine? Developing a next-gen system and interested in saving your customers money by implementing more efficient operations? Interested in obtaining a C-Motive demo unit? Let’s talk and see how we can work together!
