IEEE to Help Wireless Device Launch of New Working Group to Develop IEEE P2100.1™ Standard Specifications for Wireless Power and Charging Systems

Global standards leader to develop first in series of anticipated standards facilitating truly wireless charging

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, today announced the launch of the IEEE Wireless Power and Charging Systems Working Group (WPCS-WG). The new IEEE WG follows the creation of the Power Matters Alliance (PMA), established as an IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Industry Connections program in 2012 to advance smart and energy-efficient wireless power. The IEEE WG is developing the IEEE P2100.1™ Standard Specifications for Wireless Power and Charging Systems, the first in a series of anticipated standards addressing parallel wireless power and charging technology specifications. Seeking to establish an interoperable standard that will allow users to wirelessly power and recharge smartphones and other mobile devices, the group’s work will begin in early 2014.

“Estimates now show that by 2014, the number of mobile phones will surpass the entire population of the human race. We live in a mobility-driven society in which people place a high premium on the freedom to connect anywhere, at any time through their mobile devices,” said Clif Barber, IEEE Wireless Power and Charging Systems WG chair and PMA technical director. “Meeting the power demands of billions of devices worldwide calls for a new paradigm, one that does for power what the Internet did for data. IEEE P2100.1 will facilitate reliable, broad-scale access to wireless power and charging, preserving the freedom that mobile users expect and demand. We are very pleased to be getting this important work underway.”
