Energy Harvesting for Low-power Devices
makes perfect sense for IoT applications
The impact of energy harvesting could be economically huge and, more importantly, it could be massive for the environment. Consequently we must start thinking about how to best protect and preserve it. Environmental energy is naturally occurring both at massive scale and infinitesimally small; the technologies have been widely and efficiently disseminated. How much energy is available around us? What kind of energy sources do we have? What is their utility?
