Energy Harvesting Network Launched1st March 2010
The Energy Harvesting Network, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, was launched on Monday 01 March. The Network is managed by Steve Beeby and Geoff Merrett in the University of Southampton's School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS), and will bring together UK academic and industrial researchers and end-users of energy harvesting (EH) technology.

Davide Recevies Silver Prize6th June 2013
Davide Zilli recevied the Silver Award for his poster presentation at the University's 2013 Postgraduate Research Showcase. The award was presented to him by the University's Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Mark Spearing.His poster was on his research into the use of smartphones for biodiversity monitoring, in particular the hunt for the New Forest Cicada.
Two Papers Accepted for Publication in IEEE Transactions26th September 2011
We have recently had two papers related to our work on Energy Harvesting electronics accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems. Both publications are a result of the EPSRC project on 'Holistic Energy Harvesting'.
The first paper, 'Accurate Supercapacitor Modeling for Energy-Harvesting Wireless Sensor Nodes' investigates supercapacitors, often used in energy-harvesting wireless sensor nodes (EH-WSNs) to store harvested energy. Until now, research into the use of... [more]
