Today, most of the Internet of Thing (IoT) devices are energy-expensive and powered by bulky batteries with limited lifespans. Replacing (frequently) batteries on potentially a trillion IoT device deployed in the wild represents a significant challenge. It can limit the large-scale deployment of IoT devices and prevent us from unlocking the massive economic value enabled through the use of IoT.

We are witnessing rapid growth in the number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Many predictions state that we already have billions of IoT devices deployed globally, and this number is fast increasing, and it will approach a trillion soon. IoT enables numerous applications, and they are having a transformative impact across application domains and industry verticals, driving the massive growth in the number of IoT devices.

Applications enabled through IoT already impact our lives: For example, we use fitness trackers to track our movements and health parameters. Electronic devices such as thermostats in our homes can…
