Many environmental and industrial monitoring scenarios require wireless instrumentation with a small form factor and a long service life, a combination that forces designers to move beyond batteries and into energy harvesting techniques. This chapter considers the average requirements of wireless sensor networks, and assesses the suitability of modern thermal, photonic, and vibration-harvesting methods to power such networks across various application spaces.
