For a list of IDTechEx research on Energy Harvesting and allied technologies, see
alt="Financing for invisible energy harvesting coatings"
Financing for invisible energy harvesting coatings
The financing will enable Ubiquitous Energy to expand its technology development team, establish a full-scale prototyping facility, and execute on joint development with its first commercial partners.
alt="Excitons observed in action for the first time"
Excitons observed in action for the first time
A quasiparticle called an exciton — responsible for the transfer of energy within devices such as solar cells, LEDs, and semiconductor circuits — has been understood theoretically for decades. But exciton movement within materials has never been directly observed.
alt="Shiny quantum dots brighten future of solar cells"
Shiny quantum dots brighten future of solar cells
A house window that doubles as a solar panel could be on the horizon, thanks to recent quantum-dot work.
alt="EnOcean introduces batteryless wireless solutions to the Japanese mark"
EnOcean introduces batteryless wireless solutions to the Japanese mark
EnOcean has announced the availability of a new line of energy harvesting wireless modules particularly suited for the Japanese market.
alt="Wearable thermoelectric generator"
Wearable thermoelectric generator
A team of researchers have proposed a glass fabric-based thermoelectric generator that is extremely light and flexible and produces electricity from the heat of the human body.
alt="Collaboration on solar battery development"
Collaboration on solar battery development
Sol Chip has announced a collaboration agreement with Tadiran Batteries for solar battery development and marketing cooperation.
alt="Multilayer polymers spring into action"
Multilayer polymers spring into action
The shrinking dimensions and decreased power consumption of modern electronic gadgets have created opportunities for energy harvesting processes that tap into free, green energy from the environment. Vibration harvesters, for example, produce small amounts of electricity from everyday mechanical disturbances such as wind currents, traffic noise or footsteps.

Highlights from IDTechEx's Berlin 2014 show
This year's IDTechEx event on energy harvesting and storage was held in Berlin, Europe. Following attendee feedback and a successful introduction of parallel tracks on the topic of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Santa Clara, California at the end of 2013, the event saw the transformation of the wireless sensor networks (WSN) part of the conference to an event that incorporated significant attention to the advent of the IoT and the way the technologies covered would interact in order to create further adoption and proliferation.
alt="Organic solar cells more efficient with molecules face-to-face"
Organic solar cells more efficient with molecules face-to-face
New research reveals that energy is transferred more efficiently inside of complex, three-dimensional organic solar cells when the donor molecules align face-on, rather than edge-on, relative to the acceptor.
alt="Energy breakthrough uses sun to create solar energy materials"
Energy breakthrough uses sun to create solar energy materials
In a recent advance in solar energy, researchers have discovered a way to tap the sun not only as a source of power, but also to directly produce the solar energy materials that make this possible.
