Energy Harvesting for Electronic Devices: Latest Situation

Energy Harvesting for Electronic Devices: Latest Situation

The characteristics of energy harvesting on or near electronic devices are usually: Intermittent but lasts longer than a primary battery. Virtually maintenance-free: fit and forget. No pollution at point of creation of electricity and at point of use of this electricity which is usually nearby. Produces 0.1 microwatts to 10W when functioning. Renewable energy including from human or animal. EH electricity usually needs to be stored and…

Redox Flow Batteries' Advantages for Stationary Energy Storage Market

Redox Flow Batteries' Advantages for Stationary Energy Storage Market

An increasing number of news articles about "Redox Flow Batteries" are present on the web. This technology, mostly adopted in on-grid and off-grid applications, has been studied for the last 50 years, and it is currently being commercialized (most of the time) in a containerized size, for medium- and large-scale applications.

Pollution: The Lockdown Effect and the Battery Energy Storage Solution

Pollution: The Lockdown Effect and the Battery Energy Storage Solution

The pandemic infection of COVID-19 has led to the lockdown of a considerable number of cities, leading to reduced pollution activity. With the large number of renewable energy sources employed in the last decades to decarbonise the energy sector, a growing number of energy storage devices have been coupled with renewable energy sources.

Energy-Harvesting Design Aims to Turn Wi-Fi Signals Into Useable Power

Energy-Harvesting Design Aims to Turn Wi-Fi Signals Into Useable Power

Any device that sends out a Wi-Fi signal also emits terahertz waves —electromagnetic waves with a frequency somewhere between microwaves and infrared light. These high-frequency radiation waves, known as "T-rays," are also produced by almost anything that registers a temperature, including our own bodies and the inanimate objects around us.

Creating Stretchable Thermoelectric Generators

Creating Stretchable Thermoelectric Generators

For the first time, a soft and stretchable organic thermoelectric module has been created that can harvest energy from body heat. The breakthrough was enabled by a new composite material that may have widespread use in smart clothing, wearable electronics and electronic skin.

Terahertz Technology comes Centre Stage

Terahertz Technology comes Centre Stage

One of the last frontiers. Little used because the devices are not good enough. It lies between the much used microwave and infrared frequencies. Terahertz electromagnetic radiation has come centre stage recently with major breakthroughs claimed for THz emitters, trillionth-of-a-second switches, modulators and the sensors and there are conferences on the subject in several countries.

Distributed Generation: Off-Grid Zero- Emission kW-MW

Distributed Generation: Off-Grid Zero- Emission kW-MW

This article concerns production of electricity with zero emissions that is off-grid or capable of being off-grid when needed. That usually means a system that has energy storage and increasingly smart versions, those that manage supply and demand often for multiple loads and/or inputs. However, we also give some coverage to simple-single purpose versions such as a shipping container with a solar panel on it that creates fresh water by self-generated electricity powering desalination.
