In developing economies, it is necessary to curb on the increasing operating cost and
other energy-related cost. In order to utilize the natural resources and reduce the
overall cost, it has become mandatory to harvest the ambient energy available at a free
scale and extract it for commercial applications. Thus, energy harvesting is becoming the
crucial technique to harvest the ambient energy. The major driving factors for the energy
harvesting market are energy saving, increasing government support and changing technology
trends. Energy harvesting technique is useful in scavenging solar energy, vibration,
motion, electromagnetic, motion, fluid, etc. This report covers most of the types of
energy harvesting like light, thermoelectric, vibration, electromagnetic, fluid, motion
and others.

In the present scenario, energy harvesting can be useful in various application areas
such as consumer electronics, industrial, building and home automation, military and
aerospace, wireless sensor network (WSN), automotive, bicycle dynamo and others. Consumer
electronics is widely exposed to the energy harvesting technology. Energy harvesting
technique is used to charging up devices like mobiles, watches, mp3 players, etc. Building
and home automation is one of the fastest growing application areas and energy harvesting
is the mainstream technology in this area. A wireless sensor network is also the key
application area for energy harvesting technique.

The global energy harvesting market
[http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/energy-harvesting-market-734.html ] is
expected to reach $1894.87 million by 2017, at an estimated CAGR of 24.31%. Europe is
leading the total energy harvesting technology market, followed by North America and APAC.
In the market of ROW, the Middle East and Africa are the largest contributors.

Electroactive polymers (EAPs) have been proposed for harvesting energy. These polymers
have a large strain, elastic energy density and high energy conversion efficiency. The
total weight of systems based on EAPs is proposed to be significantly lower than those
based on piezoelectric materials.

Nanogenerators, such as the one made by Georgia Tech, could provide a new way for
powering devices without batteries. As of 2008, it has only generated some dozen
nanowatts, which is too low for any practical application.

Noise harvesting NiPS Laboratory in Italy has recently proposed to harvest
wide-spectrum, low-scale vibrations via a nonlinear dynamical mechanism that can improve
harvester efficiency up to a factor 4, compared to traditional linear harvesters.
