Energy harvesting is a key enabling technology for the future of the IoT

SAGAPONACK, NY, December 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Energy harvesting is a key enabling technology for the future of the Internet of Things (IoT). WePower Technologies, which will be held at CES 2023, is a privately funded startup founded by Lawrence (Larry) Richenstein, created to power a more resilient, reliable and sustainable IoT using small-scale energy-saving technology. Energy harvesting is still a developing market, but advances in microelectronics and power conversion circuitry with nano and pico-power technology are facilitating the acceleration of energy harvesting generator (EHG) technology that can meet the needs of the IoT industry.

Harvesting Energy from Motion to Power the IoT

“For the IoT to reach its full potential, we need a better way to power the data collection and transmission devices that support it,” said Larry Richenstein, founder and CEO of WePower. “Batteries are expensive and wasteful at scale, but harvesting kinetic energy at the output levels achieved by our patented technology is a viable option that will improve outcomes for users, service providers and IoT system manufacturers.”

As IoT infrastructures expand to include trillions of connected sensors and transmitters, each of these “smart” wireless devices will need its own power source to collect, package and deliver local data to networked systems. A key challenge facing the future of the IoT is servicing remote sensors and transmitters that require wireless power. Batteries have historically been the default choice for power, but they have a limited lifespan, require effort- and resource-intensive replacement at scale, and send millions to landfills every day. Batteries also introduce form constraints to the devices they power.

Created by veteran entrepreneurs and engineering executives from the wireless electronics and automotive industries, WePower has patented technology and products to address this challenge. WePower is leading a cutting-edge technology to harvest kinetic energy using electromagnetic induction to power wireless sensors and related devices at a much higher level than any other kinetic EHG solutions on the market.

WePower has optimized their kinetic EHGs to increase energy output from previous typical levels of 100uJ to levels up to 3mJ and further improvements are constantly being made. This category-defining level of output will enable reliable, large-scale use of wireless sensors and transmitters in industrial, automotive, smart home, smart office, smart city and aerospace applications, eliminating the need for billions of cell batteries produced and to throw out every year.
