Communication systems for multicasting information and energy simultaneously to more than one user are investigated. In the system under study, a transmitter sends the same message and signal to multiple receivers over distinct and independent channels. The fundamental communication limit under a received energy constraint, called the multicast capacity-energy function, is studied and a single-letter expression is derived. This is based on coding theorems for compound channels. The problem of receiver segmentation, where receivers are divided into related groups, is also considered.
