“Empower’s commitment to sustainability encompasses both the way we manage our business and the innovative, highly efficient technologies that we develop to reduce the power consumption and its impact of data-intensive electronics applications. And that innovation is made possible by offering highly talented people a highly rewarding work environment.”
Tim Phillips, CEO, President & Founder
The rapid growth in energy consumption is making it imperative for designers of data-intensive technologies to meet demands for reduced power consumption. Empower was founded with the specific aim of addressing this fundamental challenge.
By significantly increasing power efficiency in applications ranging from data center servers to AI systems, our patented semiconductor technology provides critical reductions in global energy consumption and carbon emissions.
Adopting Empower IVR technology in high-end servers and storage devices, for example, can help to reduce data center energy consumption by between 10 and 30%. With information technology surging to 21% of global electricity demand and data centers to 7%, global adoption of our technology would save 285 TWh of annual electricity production. That, in turn, would deliver a reduction in CO2 emissions of around 150 million tons.

What’s more, Empower’s technology eliminates the need for a large number of additional and sometimes bulky external components needed by traditional power management ICs (PMICs). Fewer materials and components, therefore, need to be mined and manufactured, while a reduced component count and smaller end product form factors translate into reduced carbon emissions from the logistics and supply chains serving OEMs and their customers.
Empower is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of its own operations. This focus on sustainability ranges from how we develop and manufacture our innovative technologies to the decisions we make in managing our global business.
Behind Empower’s innovative technology is a team of highly motivated and diverse individuals working within an inclusive, friendly and rewarding environment.
As an equal opportunities employer, we seek to hire, develop, support, retain and draw on the experience of talented individuals from the broadest possible variety of backgrounds and cultures irrespective of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, age, disability, ethnic origin or other legally protected characteristics.
We also recognize that our social commitments extend beyond our own company and that we can play a positive role in the broader communities where we operate. This means building strong links with educational establishments and businesses and supporting a variety of initiatives including the TouchStones® Discussion Project. This non-profit education organization teaches people essential communication, thinking and leadership skills.
