Energy harvesting - The Bigger Picture

Energy harvesting - The Bigger Picture

IDTechEx now takes the view that energy harvesting as a topic should be as much about higher power uses as low power ones but limited to off-grid. The winning technologies are the same from microwatts to 10kW - electrodynamic followed by photovoltaics with thermoelectrics third but about to narrow the gap. . Here is an early simplified draft of the completely rewritten IDTechEx master report on energy harvesting
