is a process through which energy derived, stored and managed to be used for viable purposes. It is defined as the process of converting ambient energy into electrical energy. This ambient energy can be used during demand hours, to supply power to off-grid remote areas. Energy is harvested from low-grade ambient energy, or other wasted energy sources. These sources include pressure gradients, thermal gradients, environmental vibrations and human power among others. This technology can be used as an alternate source to feed a primary power source thus increasing the reliability of the system when the demand exceeds the supply. For this some form of energy storage devices are needed to match the demand and supply during peak hours and demand hours. The main goal of energy harvesting is not generation of large scale electricity, but to capture small amount of energy that is wasted in industrial operations.
New innovations have increased the efficiency of these energy harvesting devices by capturing even small amount of energy and converting it into electrical energy. Increased utilization of renewable energy sources for power generation has increased the demand for energy storage devices. However, the high cost of these systems may restrain the market in developing nations.
