Heat and light for powering the Internet of Things
Harvestore is a new European project for the development of beyond-state-of-the-art technologies in the field of Internet of Things.
Our “μ-harvestorers” will be able to collect and store energy from heat and light at the same time, in order to serve a whole family of new-generation portable devices. They will be powerful, small, and environmental friendly.
A EUROPEAN NETWORK
Harvestore puts together some of the main actors of science and technology across Europe. Research, technology centers and advanced industries from 6 different countries have joined their efforts with the goal of opening-up a new technology paradigm in the world of IoT.
At the edge of science and technology
Nanoioncs and Iontronics
With Harvestore, we will fabricate new artificial materials with superior performance. Fast electrical conduction and high charge storage capacity will be achieved by taking advantage of nanoscale engineering.
Advanced science and mainstream fabrication techniques will be bridged by the use of silicon technology. Silicon combines unique properties of manufacturability, abundance and low environmental impact.
Our project coordinator Albert Tarancón has been hosted by Fundación Naturgy for a webinar on status and future of hydrogen technology. The book "Hidrógeno. Vector energético de una economía descarbonizada", realized by IREC - Institut de Recerca en Energia de Catalunya has been presented. Here is the link to the video of the event. and for book download.
A new article has been published by our partners FETFX on the project activities.
Interested in being part of Harvestore? The Materials and Physical Engineering Laboratory (LMGP) and the Laboratory of Electrochemistry and Physical-Chemistry of Materials and Interfaces (LEPMI) in Grenoble offer a PhD project on design and characterization of advances energy materials for micro-cell applications.
