EnOcean is driving forward the standardization of energy harvesting for all wireless standards to make the unique possibilities of this technology available for all wireless standards. For this, EnOcean brings its know-how into standardization working groups of the EnOcean Alliance, Bluetooth SIG and Zigbee Alliance, to further optimize these three wireless standards for particularly low-energy and, thus, sustainable applications.

EnOcean Architecture: Wireless Sensor Solutions powered by Ambient Energy
