Scavenging is in!

Energy scavenging systems are devices that convert solar power, thermal energy, wind power, mechanical energy and electromagnetic energy into electrical energy. This energy is then stored in batteries.  Benefiting from the latest developments in semiconductor technology, such energy scavenging schemes are getting increasingly easier to develop and implement.  Looking for a fun weekend project?  Why not build your own energy scavenging system.  Learn how here: Solar Powered Home
