About the Power Matters Alliance
Power Matters Alliance (PMA) is a global, not-for-profit, industry organization made up forward-thinking industry leaders working together to create a better power paradigm for wireless power technology, including charging for battery equipped devices. Since being founded in 2012, the PMA has grown rapidly across a diverse set of industries including telecommunication, consumer devices, automotive, retail, furniture, surfaces and more. Our growth and success is attributed to a unique approach of making wireless power ubiquitous in the places that consumers need it most as well as the hard work and dedication of our members.
On June 1, 2015, A4WP and PMA boards of directors voted to approve the merger of the two organizations. The new organization has retained key leaders and contributors including president, board chair, and committee charis. The merger between A4WP and PMA shows the industry coalescing around a primary standards body adopted by the world leaders in computing and telecom. For more information on the merger, click here.
