Power from intermittent, gusty wind

Power from intermittent, gusty wind

Apr 7, 2017 United States
It is interesting to me that no one, anywhere in the world, is currently using intermittent, gusty winds for any purpose whatsoever.
Micro-energy harvester for self-sustaining, integrated chip systems

Micro-energy harvester for self-sustaining, integrated chip systems

Mar 20, 2017 Germany
Research project focusing on the development of micro-energy harvesters for self-sustaining, integrated chip systems. The use of novel piezoelectric materials in vibration-based harvesters can drastically reduce their size and significantly prolong operation time.
Triboelectric energy harvesting and storage improved

Triboelectric energy harvesting and storage improved

Mar 14, 2017
To sustainably power electronics by converting mechanical energy into electricity, energy storage is essential to supply a stable regulated electric output, something traditionally realized by a direct connection between the two components through a rectifier.

Mar 3, 2017 7 United States
A unique solar-plus-storage microgrid project under way at Denver's smart and sustainable transit-oriented development, Peña Station NEXT
A rose to store energy

A rose to store energy

Mar 2, 2017 1 Sweden
In November 2015, the research group presented results showing that they had caused roses to absorb a conducting polymer solution. Conducting hydrogel formed in the rose's stem in the form of wires. With an electrode at each end and a gate in the middle, a fully functional transistor was created.
