Energy harvesting - the big picture

Energy harvesting - the big picture

Energy harvesting is producing electricity where it is needed using ambient power. The term is most commonly applied to small devices such as in the emerging market for Wireless Sensor Networks that the Koreans call Ubiquitous Sensor Networks. However, there is emerging very large business for energy harvesting as structural electronics
