BBC’s Anna Holligan visited the TWTG office this month to create an item on Tryst Light Energy – the TWTG spin-off company that specializes in energy harvesting technology for the IoT. In other words: it replaces the battery in IoT for more durable, cheaper and better solutions. Nick and Hassan told the BBC: “Why use batteries when you don’t need to?”.


The item can be listened back to on the BBC World Service website, starts on 21:52 and takes about ten minutes. The Light Energy technology received a lot of (international) media attention in the last months. We are extremely proud of our engineering team to be able to create this solution that works in light conditions of 200 lux and up. This incredibly low amount of light can be found beneath the regular office desk and can be used in various conditions for different forms of connected hardware. As of this moment our use cases offer both advantages within our clients strategic innovation as operational excellence goals for the coming years.

How about never having to use batteries again? That is the question we’ve asked ourself some time ago, and after months of engineerings, sweat and countless head aches – TWTG cracked it. The patent pending Light Energy technology really delivers on durability, cost and outsmarts the battery all day, every day. Interested in using the technology? Let us know.
