Energy Harvesting & Storage Europe: Key Learnings from the 2015 Show
The recent IDTechEx event "Energy Harvesting and Storage Europe" in Berlin was once again a good barometer of what is happening in the industry. Here are some of our delegates' comments on our Europe 2015 event.

Interviews with speakers at IDTechEx conference taking place in May
Less than 3 weeks remain before the 4th instalment of the IDTechEx European conference on energy harvesting, WSN and RTLS, taking place in Berlin on the 15th and 16th of May. Just before the event opens its doors to its attendees, Dr Harry Zervos, technology analyst with IDTechEx, interviewed some of the main speakers on their involvement with energy harvesting and wireless sensing and the reasons why their integration is becoming increasingly important in a wide range of applications.

Wireless Sensor Networks: What's next for WSN at WSN & RTLS Europe
Starting with more humble killer applications such as meter reading in buildings, WSN will grow rapidly from $0.58 billion in 2012 to $2.4 billion in 2022 according to IDTechEx research.

Zero emission fuel cell taxi for the London 2012 Olympics
The London Taxi is an iconic vehicle, with currently over 21,000 in operation in London alone. A fleet of diesel vehicles this size that operates for many hours of the day inevitably makes a substantial contribution to traffic emissions, not just of CO2 but also nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons and particulates. Changing to a zero emission taxi will have a marked effect on the pollution levels in London.

The race for plug and play vibration harvesting
The market for vibration harvesters will increase perhaps one hundred fold when they are broad band so they can be fitted without tuning - or with auto tuning - to the vibration encountered. Ideally they should be made to standard battery sizes and sold as a non polluting, long life battery replacement.
