The company’s over-the-air wireless power technology again selected as an honoree within the Embedded Technology category and will be on display at CES 2023
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Energous Corporation (NASDAQ: WATT), a leading developer of RF-based charging for intelligent wireless power networks, today announced that its WattUp PowerBridge wireless power technology has been named a CES® 2023 Innovation Awards honoree by CES in the Embedded Technology category, the second year in a row Energous has received this honor. This year’s CES Innovation Awards program received a record high number of over 2,100 submissions. The announcement was made ahead of CES 2023, the world’s most influential technology event taking place January 5-8, 2023 in Las Vegas, NV and digitally.
“This honor from CES highlights Energous’ continued work over the past year leading the development of over-the-air charging for wireless power networks,” said Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous. “As the number of IoT devices continues to explode globally, so has the demand for technology to reliably power them wirelessly over the air. I want to thank the CES Innovation Awards judges for this honor and look forward to showcasing our technology on the CES show floor in January.”
WattUp PowerBridge transmitters from Energous are capable of charging multiple devices simultaneously at-a-distance using RF-based wireless power. Transmitting from 1W and up to 15W, WattUp PowerBridges send power to and also act as a data link for connected IoT devices such as sensors, Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs), IoT tags for asset tracking and supply chain management, battery-less devices and more. Multiple WattUp PowerBridge transmitters can be meshed together to create a WattUp wireless power network covering unlimited distances for large footprint deployments such as retail stores, industrial warehouses, manufacturing plants, logistics hubs and more. WattUp PowerBridges provide a consistent level of power for IoT devices while ushering in a new reality of batteryless, mobile, waterproof, maintenance-free, and easier-to-implement devices.
The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 28 consumer technology product categories. Those with the highest rating receive the “Best of Innovation” distinction. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design. The CES 2023 Innovation Awards honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at CES.tech/innovation. More will be revealed in January. Many honorees, including Energous, will showcase their products in the Innovation Awards Showcase at CES 2023.
