Harvested Energy Unleashed

For many, the concept of energy harvesting is tightly associated with the ‘green’ movement. While that’s certainly one aspect, it overlooks a whole range of applications that have less to do with solving the world’s so-called energy crisis and more to do with solving the problem of powering remote or embedded devices — indefinitely. That […]
