Using 2D Materials in Photo-Harvesting Applications Liam Critchley
As society looks toward more ways of harvesting our natural environment, 2D materials offer a way to efficiently harvest solar rays into a usable output. 2D materials use light to create energy via advanced solar cells, producing hydrogen fuel and facilitating advanced cancer treatments.

Using 2D Materials to Create Water Energy-Harvesting Devices Liam Critchley
Designers can use 2D materials to develop different water-harvesting applications beyond the mainstream tidal and hydroelectric power harvesting process. These include harvesting energy from salinity gradients where water bodies meet and harvesting energy from rainfall and other water motions.

2D Materials in Piezoelectric Nanogenerators (PENGs) Liam Critchley
The piezoelectric effect is not only a common phenomenon in bulk inorganic materials; it is also observed in select 2D materials. This blog explores how designers can use 2D materials capable of generating a piezoelectric charge in a range of nanogenerators (PENGs) for powering small-scale devices.

2D Materials in Triboelectric Nanogenerators (TENGs) Liam Critchley
The inherent thinness, active surface, and mechanical properties of 2D materials have the potential to create more efficient and longer-lasting TENG devices for powering small-scale electronics.

New Tech Tuesdays: Three Solutions That Spur Energy Harvesting Development Tommy Cummings
In this week's New Tech Tuesday, we'll look at energy-harvesting devices from Texas Instruments, Kyocera, and Würth Elektronik.

Achieve Cost-Optimized Renewable Energy Harvesting Adam Kimmel
Renewable energy is at the forefront of global decarbonization efforts. Using green sources of energy that do not contain carbon, engineers have defined a path for infinite on-grid distributed power that does not harm the environment. Self-powering devices are the key to economic viability, and they significantly reduce replacement costs for the consumer while moving closer to a renewable landscape.

How to Maximize the Efficiency of Energy Harvesting in Electronics Adam Kimmel
Energy harvesting requires a distinction between maximum power and maximum efficiency. Improved conversion efficiency increases power for the same input energy; however, this does not necessarily mean the highest power. Here is how you can maximize the efficiency of MCU energy harvesters.

Hybrid Energy Storage Device as Backup to Solar Cells Vishay Intertechnology Inc.
The movement toward more sustainable solutions motivates design engineers to move beyond finite energy sources toward a fully renewable solution: solar cells. However, design engineers must overcome several challenges to realize this approach in the IoT.

How Energy Harvesting by Ultra-Low-Power MCUs Can Eliminate Batteries Adam Kimmel
Ultra-low-power MCUs are a good choice for energy harvesting. They exist in wearables, wireless, and other apps where extending battery life is needed. Let’s look at how energy harvesting works to understand how energy harvesting enables ULP MCUs.

Self-Powered Wireless Sensor Nodes with Energy Harvesting Rafik Mitry
Wireless sensor nodes are emerging quickly in countless applications. Powering them is becoming a challenge, as these are usually battery-operated devices. Batteries have a definite lifetime, after which it needs to be replaced. Learn how energy harvesting could extend the battery life of a WSN.
