    Feedback from past winners.

    "We are on the verge of a massive revolution in data gathering and device connectivity. Big data starts with small sensors, and many of these devices will need to be self-powered. Our technology has a small, lightweight, and flexible form factor, and its substantial power output under a wide variety of lighting conditions opens up new use cases for solar. We are honored to be recognized by IDTechEx as a leader among energy harvesting technologies."
    Chris Norris, Alta Devices President and CEO
