The Energy Harvesting Network, coordinated by myself and Prof Steve Beeby at the University of Southampton, have launched the Network's 'Data Repository' - an online catalogue for researchers worldwide to share data on ambient energy availability - for example acceleration levels, solar irradience, or wind speeds. It is hoped that, by using a common dataset, this will encourage the comparitive evaluation of energy harvesters and fuel advances in the field.

Natuarlly, the repository will only suceed if it is adopted by the community and used; hence, we invite everyone working in energy harvesting to contribute data to it, and/or use the data that is available. To kick-start the process, we have made available a selection of the data that we have obtained through our research on the 'Holistic Energy Harvesting' project - this includes vibration data from cars, household appliances, machinary and structures.

See our press release on the data repository on EETimes.
