Stefan Ikelman, Market Manager, Power Generation and Contract R&D
Stefan Ikelman joined Marlow in August 2010 to expand the Power Generation market space for thermoelectrics, which spans the sub-categories of Energy Harvesting (microwatts to watts of power harnessed from existing temperature differences for wireless sensors/transmitters, actuators, USB charging appliances, and other micro devices), Waste Heat Recovery (larger scale power systems (up to kW level) to harness energy from exhaust or other fluid streams), and Co-Generation (thermoelectrics paired with existing heat sources to power a complementary appliance to improve total performance). In addition, coinciding with Marlow Industries’ continued focus on global thermoelectric technology advancement and systems development, Stefan Ikelman is also responsible for unearthing new opportunities for government and privately funded research contracts to further this objective. Before joining Marlow, Stefan spent 13 years in Texas Instruments’ Digital Light Processing (DLP)® group, where he ended responsible for managing several major electronics company accounts, in addition to helping set up their DLP Products® factories in locations around the globe. Stefan is a graduate of New Mexico State University, holding a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with both manufacturing and automotive concentration.
