IEEE announced the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) is now opening its doors to new members. Approved as an IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Industry Connections program, the PMA is an alliance of leading industry and governmental organizations dedicated to advancing smart and energy-efficient wireless power, known as Power 2.0.
Vint Cerf, IEEE Fellow, chief Internet evangelist for Google, who is also widely acclaimed as one of the ’Fathers of the Internet,’ has been appointed honorary PMA chairman. "The PMA is dedicated to the idea that it may be possible to do for electricity what the Internet has done for information," said Vint Cerf. "The PMA’s recipe for delivering power wirelessly creates a vision of a new world in which power and information become parts of a whole. We are happy to invite interested prospective members to take part in shaping this new era of intelligent wireless power."
