We are living in a dynamic global power environment. We all need the same thing—affordable, sustainable, reliable power, and the demand is growing. While the power sector is leading the way towards a decarbonized energy system, electricity gains ground in many sectors and will make up about 25 percent of final energy consumption by 2040, as estimated by IEA.

In the last couple of years, a team of researchers at DTU Electrical Engineering have worked to develop the world's smallest power supply unit called TinyPower together with a number of companies. The initial purpose was to produce a power supply unit which could be used in LED light bulbs or light sensors. The development of the TinyPower power supply unit will mean an expected improvement in service life, cost, size, and weight. In future, wireless energy harvested from renewable energy sources is to run the world's smallest power supply unit, making it possible to use it for small new devices sewn into clothes and other wearable and IoT applications.
