Scientists at the Duke University have developed a novel approach that they believe can help generate electricity from nature’s motion. Energy harvesting is the process of converting one form of energy, such as motion, into another form of energy, in this case electricity. Strategies range from the development of massive wind farms to produce large [...]
Researchers at the University of Leeds aims to develop a system that can harness kinetic energy from marching soldiers. The $1.5 million plan will focus on finding a way to convert human energy into usable power for military field applications. It is part of the larger “battery-free soldier” project that also includes development of solar [...]
This new nanogenerator that can convert the energy of body movements into electricity was developed by the scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology. The obtained energy can be used to power a broad range of electronic devices such iPods and cellphones without using batteries.
