2021 Market Roundup: Growing Need of Energy Harvesting System in Coming Future

Yotta Energy Partners with CPS Energy to Demonstrate Distributed Solar + Storage Technology

Increased use of remote energy recovery systems to minimize power outages, improve reliability and supplement an electronic system’s main power source in an electronic circuit is mainly due to the expansion of the world market for energy harvesting systems.


Energy harvesting is the process of extracting energy from external sources and then capturing and storing it. Wireless autonomous devices, including portable electronics and wireless sensor networks, are often exposed to this technique. This method usually uses less energy for low power devices and incorporates electrical circuits to control and protect storage devices. An electrical circuit, sensor components (sensors and transducers) and a storage unit make up the power recovery system. The energy harvesting system charges the transducer with unconventional energy sources, which are then converted into electricity and stored in the battery unit. An additional electronic circuit controls the power produced and protects the storage unit and the main circuit in the system. The sensing elements act as a converter that converts physical energy (such as light, heat, vibration, pressure, salinity gradients and radio frequency) into electrical energy. This electrical energy is stored either in batteries, thin film capacitors, supercapacitors, ultracapacitors or used to operate low power electronic circuits.

According to a recent study by Facts and Factors, the global market for energy harvesting systems was estimated at around USD 432 million by 2020 and is expected to reach USD 700 million by the end of the financial year 2026, rising to a CAGR of almost 8.4% between 2021 and 2026.
