EnOcean Alliance enjoys growth in membership
Membership of the EnOcean Alliance has grown by 50% in the last year to 300 members and a thousand interoperable products that use energy-harvesting techniques to power them so they do not need cables or batteries. The EnOcean Alliance represents an association of companies that implement products or system solutions using this energy-harvesting wireless technology.
According to IMS Research, recently acquired by IHS, in 2011, wireless sensors accounted for just over 15% of the 21 million building-automation systems shipped in the EMEA and Americas markets combined. The number of wireless sensors is forecast to increase to over 25% of total building-automation sensors in EMEA and the Americas by 2015.
