Enocean AllianceThe EnOcean Alliance announced it has signed up its 200th member company, NanoSense. NanoSense develops products using EnOcean and KNX technologies that regulate and optimize air quality inside buildings. Created in April 2008 by Distech Controls, EnOcean, Masco, MK Electric, Omnio and Thermokon, the EnOcean Alliance now counts 200 member companies from 20 different countries. Collectively, Alliance members support 750 interoperable products deployed in over 200,000 buildings worldwide that use energy harvesting wireless technology designed for building automation systems. Other Alliance members include General Electric, Siemens, Masco, Leviton, Honeywell and Texas Instruments.

The EnOcean Alliance has reportedly created an ecosystem around energy harvesting wireless technology to create an industry standard, continue product interoperability and promote the technology among members. EnOcean-based energy harvesting solutions are battery-less and wireless, and therefore operate independent of an external energy source. The sensors “harvest and store” tiny amounts of energy from motion, light or temperature differences. The harvested power is sufficient to transmit a wireless signal and intelligently control lighting, heating and air conditioning systems. In many cases they deliver recurring savings of 20-30 percent in new building installations and up to 80 percent savings in retrofit scenarios. Maintenance, cabling requirements and installation time are also considerably reduced.

"I'm very proud to welcome our 200th member company to the Alliance,” said EnOcean Alliance Chairman & CEO Graham Martin. “We've seen significant growth in just three years and this milestone is a real symbol of vitality and dynamism of the Alliance. This fine success rewards all of the work carried out by our members and our promoters."
