Energy Harvesting 201228th March 2012
Following from the success of our conference "Energy Harvesting 2011", held in London last year, today we held this year's conference. Energy Harvesting 2012 was held in London on 28th March 2012.
Attendees at Energy Harvesting 2012
Speakers included Prof Peter Woias (IMTEK, Germany), Frank Schmidt (CTO Enocean), Prof Vittorio Ferrari (University of Brescia, Italy), Roy Freeland (Perpetuum) and Prof Eric Yeatman (Imperial College, London).
The event provided a platform for disseminating energy-harvesting advances in the UK, and contained presentations from well-respected speakers from academia and industry, demonstrations from companies, and posters from postgraduate students. Around 100 participants attended from both industry and academia.
The event was very well received by all that attended, and we look forward to Energy Harvesting 2013!
