This fifth annual IDTechEx event provides insight into energy harvesting technologies, case studies and markets, ranging from consumer electronics and sensors all the way to vehicles, building and industrial automation.

Attendees to this event will learn:

  • Who needs energy harvesting, the ROI and sectors close to adoption. End user and integrators from a diverse range of markets present their needs and experiences.
  • All the technology options - from energy harvester choices, energy storage options, through to the latest in low power electronics and wireless sensors and related technologies such as thin film harvesters and supercapacitors.
  • The current state of the technology at the event tradeshow.

...and all with an analytical, commercial outlook, taking into account market requirements, competitive technologies and development roadmaps. More than 350 people attend this event to aid their critical business and technology development strategy decisions in this emerging, high growth topic.

Application Focus

Application-focused sessions cover the opportunity of energy harvesting in the built environment, showing how it is enabling smart - and more energy efficient - buildings and smart cities, merging with the Internet of Things (IoT) and M2M evolution. Sessions also focus on industrial wireless monitoring, transportation and consumer electronics. The conference features some of the world's largest user and integrator companies presenting on their needs and many are in attendance to learn how they can use these new technologies to address their challenges.

Technology Focus

The event assesses the merit of the following technologies from world leading companies and research institutes:

  • Energy harvesting technologies, including thermoelectric, piezoelectric, photovoltaic, electromagnetic, wireless power transfer and multi modal versions
  • Thin film batteries and supercapacitors
  • New manufacturing techniques
  • Ultra low power electronics and power management
  • Wireless sensor technologies including RFID, RTLS and WSN at different protocols

In addition, this year's event is co-located with Wireless Sensor Networks & RTLS Europe, Printed Electronics Europe and Supercapacitors Europe - enabling you to meet and interact with colleagues in other exciting technologies and allow you to gain the most from your attendance, with more than 120 exhibitors.

Assess all the key technologies and opportunities in one location

Energy Harvesting & Storage Europe is co-located with Wireless Sensor Networks & RTLS and Supercapacitors. All attendees have access to any of the following conferences and tradeshow areas, giving you broader coverage in related areas of all the emerging technologies.

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) will be used to automatically monitor building occupancy and climate control, oil and gas pumping, industrial manufacture processes, forest fires, traffic, assets in hospitals and other buildings and much more over wide areas over the coming years. This event appraises the technologies, markets and opportunities, bringing the community together.

Graphene Live 2012

Supercapacitors Europe provide a new technological solution for the energy storage needs in many industries. Bridging the gap between capacitors and batteries, supercapacitors deliver high power and energy densities increasingly closer to rechargeable batteries, a characteristic suited for many current and future industry needs. From instant flashlight power in mobile technologies to instant acceleration power in an electric vehicle, they are substituting and supplementing the functions of rechargeable batteries. This IDTechEx event, focuses on the uses, potential users, market forecasts and opportunities as well as giving the latest technology trends. It is the meeting place for users, investors, suppliers, developers, system integrators and government representatives.

Feedback from past attendees:

Encouraging more poster presentation is a good way for making emerging technologies more palpable.

OSRAM Sylvania

It was a very interesting forum. Of all the ones I've been to, perhaps the only one where I could see what the industry needs and seems to be adopting out of the power scavenging area.

Georgia Tech

The conference was excellently organized. The presentations were good, as were the questions and discussions.


Excellent range of applications and topics.

Kimberly Clark

You provided excellent reviews on sensors and energy harvesting!

Dreyer Medical Clinic

Excellent conference with broad range of presentations!

Starkey Labs, Inc.

I was impressed with the attendees at this show. Best one yet & good connections for the company.

Bently Nevada

The conference exceeded all expectations in terms of organization and quality of presentations. Excellent!

University of Lisbon

There was a great mix of papers, which kept the whole event fresh.
