Ambient Photonics Demonstrates Low-Light Energy Harvesting Technology for More Sustainable IoT at CES 2023

Company’s breakthrough solar cells eliminate e-waste from disposable batteries, reduce supply chain emissions for connected electronics

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ambient Photonics will be at CES 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 5 – 8 at The Venetian Expo Center (Toscana 3802) to demonstrate how to decarbonize connected devices through real-world applications. Showcasing its novel low-light energy harvesting solar technology, Ambient will display proof-of-concept prototypes across a range of IoT, smart home, smart retail and industry 4.0 devices in partnership with the world’s leading IoT manufacturers.

“As we pioneer a new indoor energy harvesting market from the ground up, we recognize the importance of a proven, repeatable methodology for integrating energy harvesting technology into devices,” said Ambient CEO Bates Marshall. “Our mission at CES is to demonstrate this model and show how manufacturers are quantifiably reducing emissions while at the same time developing products that support sustainable living for consumers.”

Ambient’s expert engineers will share the design considerations, performance benefits and carbon lifecycle analyses of integrating its award-winning high power density PV cells into devices.

Ambient’s technology will also be on display at Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) booth #52014 integrated into the new UEI ETERNA remote control. Leveraging Ambient’s innovations, the ETERNA captures power from low-light conditions, such as those in living and bedrooms, to dramatically reduce the products’ environmental footprint by eliminating battery waste. The ETERNA has won the 2023 CES Innovations Award, Honoree, further demonstrating both UEI and Ambient’s leadership in sustainability.
