In the diverse world of energy harvesting devices, efficiency, yield and optimization are hot topics. In the US, researchers are working to develop a novel technique that would convert and optimize thermoelectric material. In Japan, enhancing battery performance is a key subject of research as the ever-increasing market for portable electronic devices has resulted in an equally heavy demand for secondary rechargeable batteries, Lithium-ion being among the most popular. Japanese researchers are experimenting with rotating magnetic fields and textured microstructures to improve charge-discharge performance.
Energy harvesting, otherwise known as power harvesting or energy scavenging includes photovoltaics, thermovoltaics, piezoelectrics and electrodynamics, among other options, which are now being used in a wide variety of applications. Although energy harvesting applications reach from vehicles to the smart grid, the majority of the value this year is in consumer electronic applications, where energy harvesters have been used for some time.
In their latest report, IDTechEx predicts the total market for energy harvesting devices will rise to $3 billion in 2024.? However, as 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.
Which technologies have the most potential now and in the future? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? Which countries have the most active programs and why? What are the leading universities, developers, manufacturers and other players up to? What alliances exist? What are the timelines for success? All these questions and more are answered in the Energy Harvesting and Storage for Electronic Devices report.
