Growth in High-powered Energy Harvesting

The new reality is that energy harvesting - creation of off-grid electricity where it is needed, using ambient energy - is now one subject from microwatts for wireless sensors to tens of kilowatts for vehicles and buildings. This is because it increasingly involves the same technologies, locations and companies. One structure, such as a remote building, will tend to use a range of energy harvesting from very low power EH for wireless sensors to very high power EH for charging those newly announced Tesla house batteries.

Listening to the radio even with an electric drive

To enable radio reception in electric vehicles, manufacturers must install filters and insulate cables, since electrical signals will otherwise interfere with music and speech transmissions. Now, using new calculation methods, researchers are paving the way for pure listening pleasure while also helping to lower the associated costs.
