Workshop Event Showcases our Energy Harvesting Research11th February 2013
Our project on 'Holistic Energy Harvseting' has now come to an end, and we held a workshop at Imperial College London on 11 February 2013 to showcase the project's demonstrators and research findings.

Attendees found out about the project's objectives and achievements, following by an interactive showcase of the project's demonstrators and research outputs. A particular emphasis of the event was giving attendees the opportunity to interact with the project's researchers and academics. In the afternoon, a series of technical seminars discussed various areas of the research in more depth. The day was designed to give attendees the flexibility to either drop-in for the project overview and demonstrations, or to come for the full day and get the full holistic experience!
The three-year project 'Next-Generation Energy Harvesting Electronics: Holistic Approach' was funded by the EPSRC In 2009, and involved over 25 researchers at four universities (the University of Southampton, Newcastle University, Imperial College, and the University of Bristol) in partnership with four industrial companies (Dialog Semiconductor, Diodes Incorporated, ARM, and Mentor Graphics). The research joined together different research fields, including energy harvesting and MEMS processing, efficient power-conversion electronics, low-power embedded computing systems, simulation and electronic design automation.

Sam Presents Poster at EH 20117th February 2011
At this year's Energy Harvesting Network conference, Hui Huang (Sam) presented his poster on the topic of "A Feasibility Study on Body-Worn Inertial Energy Harvesting during Walking and Running". The conference, held at Savoy Place (home of the IET in central London), had over 100 attendees; Sam was able to discuss his research with all those interested.
