Xidas becomes one of the #1000 solutions to be promoted by The World Alliance for Efficient Solutions.

FREMONT, CA: With the release of Xidas’ innovative suite of energy harvesting solutions for IoT, the emerging tech start-up has been recognized and accepted as one of #1000 solutions to be promoted by The World Alliance for Efficient Solutions. The program created by Solar Impulse Foundation brings together the major actors in clean technologies to generate synergies that will ultimately accelerate the deployment of clean and profitable solutions that can address the environmental challenges of today.

The Internet of Things will connect billions and billions of sensors to monitor insights on several aspects of society. The majority of these sensors look to be wireless to scale the number of locations they can be deployed. With this unprecedented amount of electronics in the environment, battery replacement leads to a massive issue: battery disposal. Some batteries contain toxic metals, which become hazardous waste and pose threats to health and the environment if improperly disposed of.

Through the World Alliance, the Solar Impulse Foundation has launched the second phase of its action: opting #1000 solutions to protect the environment in a profitable method and bring them to decision-makers to encourage them to embrace more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies. After a 3-month stringent evaluation cycle, reviewed by independent experts, the company is proud to be chosen and recognized by this prestigious group.

Leveraging decades of 3D manufacturing research, Xidas has released disruptive vibration-based energy harvesting generators and supplementary PMIC modules, and specialized batteries. These energy harvesters promise to offer wireless sensors with up to 10+ years of a lifetime by gathering energy from small vibrations in the environment and converting it into energy. The firm sees their new energy harvester to power IoT in a much more efficient and sustainable method - by diminishing the requirement of constantly replacing and disposing of batteries every 1-2 years.
