How will the intersection of technologies for sustainable food, water and energy supplies advance Sustainable Development Goals in the next decade?

2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
in Salon 10

Talk Description

Harvesting ubiquitously-available mechanical energy based on advanced nanotechnology

Sustainable energy supplies is critical for the future of human being society, particularly with the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT). It becomes more challenging to power the IoT sensors, which have been deployed by a large number (hundreds of millions or even billions) each year. Piezoelectric nanogenerators (PENGs), which can convert ubiquitously available mechanical energies into electricity, have been considered as a promising energy harvesting tool for self-powered small-sized electronics, such as powering the IoT sensors.
