Deployment of sensing devices in remote areas makes battery replacement virtually impossible, so harvesting available energy for replenishment of the supply is essential. The energy available is very small, therefore ultra low power design for both computation and communication devices is required. In the paper, we will discuss the need for a system-level approach to energy scavenging, and demonstrate how effective harvesting is possible even under demanding circumstances.
