Workshop „Energy Harvesting Systems – FlexTEG“
25. - 26. Juni 2015, Fraunhofer IWS Dresden
The FlexTEG workshop focuses on all aspects of energy harvesting systems addressing material development, production technologies and system design and development.
The workshop will provide insight into the basic principles and potential applications of energy harvesting systems.
Thermoelectric polymers, for instance, is an upcoming and pretty new field in the thermoelectric community.The main advantage of polymers is the flexible and non-toxic character of the material. Especially flexible TEG, which can be wrapped around different surfaces like pipes, are attractive for industrial applications or body electronics.
The workshop will cover, among others, the following hot topics in energy harvesting:
- harvesting systems
- flexible TEG
- alternative harvester concepts
- harvester applications
- energy storage systems
