Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to provide details of recent energy harvesting developments.

Design/methodology/approach

Following an introduction, this paper first considers mechanical and biomechanical energy harvesting developments. It then discusses hybrid harvesting technologies and self-powered sensors and concludes with a brief discussion.

Findings

Energy harvesting is the topic of a major research effort and growing commercial activities. Several advanced technologies are being used to develop sophisticated devices to harvest individual or combined energy sources. These developments are expected to play a central role in many emerging sensor markets.

Originality/value

This paper provides technical details of a selection of recently reported energy harvesting developments.
