Texas Instruments upgrades its commitment to EnOcean Alliance for energy-efficient buildings
"With Texas Instruments as a new promoter in the Alliance, we can boast a highly reputed, global partner to spread the benefits of energy harvesting technology," says Graham Martin, chairman of the EnOcean Alliance. "This in-depth cooperation will contribute to defining the energy harvesting wireless technology and setting it up as a standard for energy-efficient buildings."
TI has successfully collaborated with EnOcean since 2005 and TI ICs are used in a number of EnOcean modules. In June 2010 the two companies announced their intention to expand collaboration in the area of energy harvesting technology.
"EnOcean's batteryless and wireless technology opens new opportunities for energy-efficient buildings," said Volker Prueller, marketing manager for TI's Low-Power RF products. "In our promoter role, TI can work closely with other members of the alliance to increase development of energy harvesting technology."
