More Details

A novel kind of all-textile energy harvester (A-TEHs) can harvest mechanical energy as electric power directly. It fully integrates clean and sustainable electric energy generating functions within fabric structures, and exhibits better electric performance among similar products.

The energy harvester retains all excellent properties and characteristics of fabric, including wearability, washability, breathability, thermal comfort, durability, super-flexibility, light weight, size scalability and tailorability into different shapes. It shows enormous application e.g. energy harvesters for energy storage devices, self-powered sensing systems for healthcare and monitoring.
