Energy Independent Electric Boats and Ships Lead the Way
There is more energy to harvest at sea. True, water craft have stronger resistance to overcome but on balance, it means that energy independent electric boats are more common than their equivalents on land or in the air and they have lessons for both.

Latest energy harvesting will change the world
High power energy harvesting (HPEH) is the clean part of off-grid renewable energy and its main potential lies at kilowatts to megawatts. Few things are genuinely new in this world but newly important aspects of energy harvesting really matter.

Multi-mode energy harvesting
It seems obvious; energy harvesting is intermittent, so combine different types to make it continuous and therefore much more useful.
