April 23, 2021 by TAIYO YUDEN

White Paper Overview

As climate change remains at the center of many conversations globally, countries are looking to renewable energy sources to reduce the volume of emissions produced annually. Moreover, with the rapid deployment of sensors into electronic devices with shrinking geometries, installing and replacing batteries can be challenging or impractical. Although the technology is still evolving, energy harvesting can provide an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to battery power.

This white paper takes a look at several energy harvesting options, the benefits of EDLCs over batteries, and the solutions TAIYO YUDEN provides.
