Energy Harvesting ConsortiumAddress: Tokyo, Japan
On May 14, 2010, we established the Energy Harvesting Consortium in Japan with 12 member companies. As of October 2016, the number of members is 44, and we are continually receiving inquiries from interested companies and organizations throughout Japan as well as overseas.
We aim to incubate and accelerate new ventures embarked upon by our members as well as stimulate the relevant markets in collaboration with the government of Japan.
Our activities fall into two categories: co-operative and specific. Co-operative activities include activities such as information gathering, standardization, making recommendations on policies/regulations, and public relations.
Specific activities involve facilitating meetings between companies in the form of internal working groups (and ultimately spin-off groups) to develop specific energy harvesting products. Details of our activities are not made public.
