High Power Energy Harvesting: Off-Grid 10W-1MW 2017-2027

This unique report reflects the new reality that energy harvesting - creation of off-grid electricity where it is needed, using ambient energy - is now widely deployable up to 100kW and beyond. This is resulting in dramatic new capabilities such as the rapidly growing number of land, water and air vehicles that operate entirely on sunshine and electricity becoming affordable and feasible in remote parts of Africa. It will result in the electric vehicle that has longer range than the vehicles it replaces.

Triboelectric Energy Harvesting (TENG) 2017-2027

Invented only four years ago, triboelectric energy harvesting potentially serves most power levels and formats. Particularly it addresses the trend to smart green materials replacing components-in-a-box. An independent commercialisation roadmap is needed with device, materials opportunities and impediments prioritised. This is it. Exponential growth from making new things possible? If investors and industry get behind triboelectrics, sales including integrated devices could be rapidly passing one billion dollars in ten years.

Structural Electronics 2017-2027: Applications, Technologies, Forecasts

Structural electronics (SE) is one of the most important technological developments of this century. It forms a key part of the dream, formulated decades ago, of computing disappearing into the fabric of society. It also addresses, in a particularly elegant manner, the dream of Edison in 1880 that electricity should be made where it is needed. SE is often biomimetic - it usefully imitates nature in ways not previously feasible. It is a rapidly growing multi-billion dollar business.
