Comments Off on New Micro-Machine Harvests Energy from Vibrations

Highways , train stations , and even dance floors : the world is full of vibrating surfaces that could yield a rich trove of clean, sustainable energy .  It’s called piezoelectric energy , formed by the conversion of mechanical strain into electrical current.  Now a team of researchers in Europe has developed a micro-scaled piezoelectric device that could harvest energy from machinery as well as from infrastructure and buildings. The tiny devices are ideal for use in powering remote sensing equipment , for example to monitor bridges or machines for early signs of deterioration. In that case they could play a key role in more energy efficient maintenance for wind turbines and other renewable energy infrastructure , while lowering human risk.
