Regulatory Approvals



Energous’ 1W WattUp PowerBridge transmitter technology was approved by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in China for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Energous’ WattUp PowerBridge supports multiple next-generation applications including smart tags, electronic shelf labels, sensors, asset trackers and more.



Energous’ 1W WattUp PowerBridge transmitter received regulatory approval from the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), Canada’s technology regulatory body, for RF-based power transfer at any distance.

Partnership Momentum



Energous and Atmosic Technologies, an innovator in energy harvesting wireless platforms for the loT, released a Wirelessly-Charged Sensor Evaluation Kit featuring Atmosic’s ATM3 energy harvesting Bluetooth Low Energy System-on-Chip (SoC) solution and Energous’ FCC-certified 1W WattUp PowerBridge transmitter.



Energous demonstrated its advanced wireless power network technology and interoperability with WattUp-powered partner products, including Wiliot, Juniper Networks, Atmosic Technologies, Syntiant and e-peas at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2022) in Las Vegas, NV.



The company continued its partnership with Wiliot, a Sensing as a Service company and IoT technology innovator. Together, the companies have integrated Energous WattUp 1W active energy harvesting technology as a new and compelling option to power Wiliot’s IoT Pixel tags that are designed for retail, medical, industrial, warehousing, home and industrial automation.



“We delivered our first shipment of 1W WattUp PowerBridge transmitters in the 2021 fourth quarter and we are very pleased to report that in the 2022 first quarter, we fulfilled additional orders of WattUp PowerBridges,” said Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous. “We also established new partner relationships with Atmosic Technologies, WiGL and Syntiant, as well as continued to expand the regulatory and geographic reach for our RF-based charging for wireless power networks, securing important regulatory approvals in China and Canada. Approval of our WattUp technology in these key geographies increases the global Energous ecosystem and opens up new design options such as cordless, battery-less and fully waterproof devices for IoT manufacturers.”
