Keywords:Energy harvesting  industrial automation 

Energy harvesting technology has only become commercially available in the last few years and is enabling entirely new, energy saving applications in building and industrial automation. The first requirement for designing self-powered wireless products was the ability to scavenge energy from the surrounding environment. Energy harvesting has been around for centuries: after all, windmills, tide mills and water turbines have been extracting raw energy from the environment to generate power since ancient times. The second requirement was to use this energy for efficient communication between different devices. Again, likely solutions have been assumed for some time, with low power radio systems such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
