EnOcean Dominates IP Ownership in Energy Harvesting for Wireless Sensor Networks

This new report from WTRS evaluates intellectual property ownership, protection issues, and the growth of adoption of energy harvesting for wireless sensor networks

Mountain View, CA November 3, 2009


Energy harvesting for wireless sensor networks is an area of active and ongoing development. The control of energy harvesting prior art is often overlooked. EnOcean GmbH has a strong portfolio of intellectual property which will have significant impact on the future path of energy harvesting for wireless sensor networks.

"Both EnOcean's patent portfolio and its commitment to protecting that portfolio are very strong", according to Kirsten West, PhD, Principal Analyst with WTRS. "Companies marketing solutions that combine the use of wireless sensor technologies integrated with energy harvesting technologies need to be aware of existing intellectual property".

Using only publicly available information, gathered from public patent sources, and filing information, this report reviews EnOcean and its alliance activity, summarizes the EnOcean wireless technology, analyzes intellectual property management strategies, and EnOcean intellectual property holdings, as well as activities by individual inventors at EnOcean.
