EnerHarv Overview

EnerHarv 2018 proceedings now made FREE and OPEN to public!!!

‘A focal point for a community of experts and users of energy harvesting & related technologies to share knowledge, best practices, roadmaps, experiences and create opportunities for collaboration’

Announcing the 2020 Keynote Speakers!!!

  • Sally Safwat Amin, Intel, Towards Miniaturized Energy Harvesting Platform for Powering Net-Zero Energy Systems”
  • Baoxing Chen, Analog Devices, “Powering the IoT: An Energy Harvesting Perspective”
  • Veena Misra, NCSU, “Self-Powered Wearable Sensors for Health and Environmental Monitoring”

Key drivers for this workshop?

  • By 2025 we need to power a trillion sensors [source McKinsey]
  • Wireless sensors need battery changes – we need where possible to use regenerative power to avoid this
  • Energy harvesting component designers often do not understand how to optimise system level performance
  • The ambient energies available are often unknown
  • Industrial IoT (internet of things) device developers need to reduce power consumption to extend battery life and potentially self-power
  • The conversation has moved to “How can I take advantage of this technology?”
  • We need to deliver an energy harvesting ecosystem roadmap to guide and accelerate development
  • We need to bring a community of experts together to address these issues and opportunities

What shall I see & do at the workshop?

    • Demonstrations from leading industry and academic developers
      • Materials, devices, systems, visualization and simulation tools
    • Examples of successful Energy Harvesting products already created
    • Network with developers and (potential) users and integrators of energy harvesting materials, devices and systems
          • Discuss their demos
          • Understand where the technology is going
          • Identify opportunities and bottlenecks
          • Scope out collaboration opportunities
          • Share best practices
