Witt Energy: Collecting energy through movement
Dr Peter Harrop, chairman of IDTechEx, discusses Witt Energy, a novel method of energy harvesting, which can harvest a variety of natural energy: wind, water, movement, etc.
Microgrids but not as we know them
The "IDTechEx Show!" Berlin, April 11-12 will have 2500+ paying delegates, 220 exhibitors and nine parallel conferences but there is a difference this year.
Airborne Wind Energy: sophisticated technology, primitive marketing
The technology of Airborne Wind Energy AWE has progressed in leaps and bounds recently as many developers prepare to sell them.
The 200+ stand IDTechEx Show!
The 200+ stand, eight conference IDTechEx Show! in Santa Clara, California, November 18-19 will this year include a dedicated session on electric vehicles. It has been several years since IDTechEx last hosted this topic in CA and we are thrilled to be back.
Exotic new sources of free electricity: $50 billion market
High Power Energy Harvesting (HPEH) is a term beginning to be used for creation of electricity where it is needed using ambient "free" energy. That zero-pollution, high-energy conversion typically captures light (photovoltaics), heat difference (thermoelectrics and heat pumps) and movement (electrodynamics).
Electric energy independent vehicles: electric vehicle end game
Energy Independent Vehicles 2016-2026, the brand new report from IDTechEx Research, argues that electric energy independent vehicles will be one of the most important megatrends this century because buying and delivering fuel becomes a thing of the past and a major source of global and local pollution is eliminated.
Electric vehicle end game: self-powered, energy autonomous
The end-game with electric vehicles by land, water and air is for them to be self-powered. They will create all their electricity from ambient energy such as light, wind, waves and tide where necessary storing it until needed.
High power energy harvesting becomes significant
High Power Energy Harvesting: Off-Grid 10W-100kW 2016-2026 is the title of a new IDTechEx report examining a newly significant off-grid energy market.
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.
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.
