Analysis of energy harvesting applications

  1. 1. Analysis of Energy Harvesting ApplicationsAmbient energyEnergy harvesting is the use of ambient energy to provide electricity for small and or mobileequipment, whether electrical or electronic. In 2011, $700 million was spent on the energyharvesting component itself, rising to just under $5 billion in 2022.Those wishing to use energy harvesting need reassurance that it is a technology that hasprogressed beyond trials and new product announcements. They need to benchmark bestpractice. In addition, potential users and those supplying, financing or otherwise involved inenergy harvesting need to identify the successful suppliers, technologies and users and learnfrom the failures out there. This report provides the answers, with analysis of over 170 successfulongoing uses of energy harvesting in 33 countries. Here we summarise some of the findings.Most successful applicational sectorsThe main ongoing uses so far of energy harvesting are in the following applicational sectorsHowever, this is rapidly changing, mainly as more territories catch up with others in differentaspects. For example, in energy harvesting for vehicles, Ford, Volvo, Volkswagen, BMW andothers are now in extensive trials of energy harvesters for braking and capturing energy fromheat.Overall winnersIn market value, variety of applications and number of devices, the Consumer sector is biggest ofall and will remain so for the next ten years. Overall, photovoltaics is the clear winner and webelieve its dominance will continue. Overall, China is the main manufacturer of productsemploying energy harvesting by number and value and this situation will pertain for theforeseeable future. Of the many types of energy harvesting employing electrodynamics, thosecapturing human energy are hugely successful. They include bicycle dynamos, wind-up radiosand lights, kinetic wristwatches and miniature wind turbines.There is a second generation of energy harvesting where two technologies are combined, notablyphotovoltaics with electrodynamic in laptops, radio, phone chargers, rock fall monitors, cars androad furniture, etc. This is more successful than piezoelectrics or thermoelectrics now butwithout the glamour. Indeed, totally new forms of photovoltaics and electrodynamics are now inongoing use. Examples are non-silicon flexible PV in bags and apparel and electrodynamics inpaving.SuppliersIn our research, most suppliers of energy harvesting turn out to be small companies. In due

There is always a doubt in the minds ofpotential users when they see newer companies offering technologies abandoned by the leadersyet with no clear breakthrough to explain why they can succeed where others failed. Some evenoffer what they can make rather than what is needed.Leading continents and countriesBy a big margin, the USA spends far more on energy harvesting products than any other country.Primarily, it takes the form of expenditure by NASA and the US Department of Defense, and thepublic buying consumer goods, all favouring photovoltaics.Research in this reportIn the IDTechEx report "Analysis of Energy Harvesting Applications" we give more than 170case studies of energy harvesting in ongoing use in 33 countries - enough to give some idea ofthe leading countries, technologies and applications. The number of case studies given byapplication sector in the report are shown below.Buy Your Copy of Report: Details:Published: July 2012Price Single User License: US $ 2895Table of Contents1.
