If you are contractually bound to the ESP32, then you are contractually bound to the ESP32. Case closed.

If you are free to switch to another chip, why don't you state your requirements for power consumption, on-chip functionality and maximum cost (for development kit, raw chip or whatever), and other requirements / restrictions?

I don't expect anyone around here to be able to reduce the power consumption of the ESP32, except by trivial measures such as reducing the clock frequency (if that is possible on the ESP32) or being more clever in turning of peripherals when not needed (if that is possible / relevant on the ESP32).

Knowing nothing about your functional requirements (so this may not be relevant for you): If what you need is Bluetooth, the nRF52 / nRF53 IoT SoC chips are recognized for their low power consumption. If going to another chip is an option, take a look at nRF[^]. These chips also support some older wireless technologies such as ANT and Zigbee. If what you need is 4G IoT, there is the nRF91 chip, but I believe that is a more expensive chip.

Off hand, I can't tell which technology these chips are using, but the proof of the pudding is the actual power consumption, not the nanometers. If you have the option to go to another chip, and your target is either Bluetooth or LTE, you could pick up the specifications of the nRF chips from the website for consideration.
