New Report Added in ResearchMoz Reports Database Energy Harvesting and Storage for Electronic Devices 2011-2021
Energy harvesting is otherwise known as power harvesting or energy scavenging. It is the use of ambient energy to power small electronic or electrical devices. That includes photovoltaics, thermovoltaics, piezoelectrics and electrodynamics, among other options, which are now being used in a wide variety of applications. The technology has reached a tipping point, because the necessary lower power electronics and more efficient energy gathering and storage are now sufficiently affordable, reliable and longer lived for a huge number of applications to be practicable. From wind-up laptops for Africa, wireless light switches working from the power of your finger and wireless sensors in oil fields monitoring equipment power by vibration - these are all in use now with many more applications emerging.

Energy harvesting has reached a tipping point. This is because the necessary lower power electronics and more efficient energy gathering and storage are now sufficiently affordable, reliable and longer lived for a huge number of applications to be practicable. From wind-up laptops for Africa to the wireless light switch working from the power of your finger, these things are either available or imminently available. And photovoltaics, long used in aerospace, has come down-market, even to road furniture but it has much further to go even to disposable solar film and even solar paint. The first solar powered watches and phones have appeared. Some new photovoltaic technologies are printed reel to reel at low cost, the resulting film working off heat as well as light. For example, Sony is commercialising flexible solar cells for indoor use.
Latest Market Research Reports on Energy Harvesting Market
However, there are further challenges to overcome in order to achieve self-powered wireless sensor networks monitoring devices in hostile environments, inaccessible parts of the globe and even inside the human body. Some of the challenges include lowering manufacturing costs and optimising performance of energy harvesters, while always keeping in mind innovation in competing technologies such as primary batteries. Taking these observations into account, IDTechEx find that the total market for energy harvesting devices, in applications ranging from consumer electronics to industrial monitoring and wireless sensor networks will reach over $5 billion by 2022.
