Energy Harvesting: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, 2013 to 2019 a New Research Report Available at

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 20, 2013

Energy Harvesters markets at $ 131.4 million in 2012 are projected to increase to $ 4.2 billion in 2019. Growth is anticipated to be based on demand for micro power generation that can be used to charge thin film batteries. Systems provide clean energy that is good for the environment. Growth is based on global demand for sensors and wireless sensor networks that permit control of systems.

The 2013 study “Energy Harvesting: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, 2013 to 2019 -” has 597 pages, 288 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the Energy Harvesting is used inside telemedicine systems and m-health initiatives as a way to implement ruggedized handset communications for all clinicians.

Advanced storage devices are emerging simultaneously. Storage devices can leverage the power captured by energy harvesting devices. Energy storage technologies of super-capacitors and thin-film batteries have become cost-effective. Energy harvesting devices have attained workable levels of efficiency. There are significant cost reductions. Many applications are related to smarter computing that depends on sensors capturing change in conditions and making adjustments to the environment based on measured change.

Existing energy harvesting and storage applications include vibration-based wireless train measuring systems, wireless sensors distributed city wide to implement smart cities, oil field monitoring systems, windup laptops for use in remote regions, and wireless light switches for use in smart buildings. Wireless sensors are self-powering. They can be used to alert and monitor a range of environments and incidents, pollution and forest fires, robberies in a city, temperature in a building, and movement around a border fence.

Energy harvesting technologies include electrodynamics, photovoltaics, piezoelectrics, and thermovoltaics. Photovoltaic systems for solar energy are evolving at a slower pace. The energy harvesting and energy storage market factors implement light harvesting for small devices.

Technological developments in the fields of low-power electronics and energy storage systems have allowed energy harvesting to become an increasingly viable technology. It is alternatively referred to as energy scavenging and power harvesting. Energy harvesting technology has become sophisticated and efficient.

According to the study, “Converting ambient energy to useable electrical energy harvesting (EH) systems ( is a useful and compelling technology. The technologies offer an inexpensive and compact way to power portable electrical devices initially and to create stores of power in the long term.”

Electronics tends to rely heavily on batteries. EH technology powers an increasing number of consumer and industrial products that are untethered or need to become disconnected from electrical outlets. As initial projects succeed and prove their worth, the technology is set to proliferate.

At some point energy harvester markets will shift from simple growth to rapid growth measured as a penetration analysis. This will happen as markets move beyond the early adopter stage. Eventually energy harvesters will be used as fuel to power batteries for electronic devices and smart phones. The energy is manufactured from vibration and thermal differentiation that is ambient in the environment. Energy harvesters have become more feasible as the technology evolves.

McGuire Movers Shares New Moving Advice as Tech Industry Lifts the Real Estate Market

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 11, 2013

Thanks to the tech industry boom in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley, the real estate market is experiencing a surge, spurring increased home sales in the area. This uptick in home sales will, in turn, drive more moves, a trend that moving companies, such as McGuire Movers, has already noted in recent months.

More home purchases mean more moving and storage activity for both home buyers and sellers. To help guide a seamless move, the experts at McGuire Movers explain the proper timeline for moving and provide the following tips.

The moving specialists at McGuire Movers recommend that as soon as home sellers put their property on the market, they should begin purchasing packing supplies. These packing supplies should include different-sized boxes, tape, labels, and padding. To help home movers determine how many boxes they should purchase, McGuire Movers has provided a free moving tool powered by online real estate database Zillow on their website. This tool gives an estimate of how many boxes people will need based on factors such as number of rooms and size of the house.

Next, every room in the house should be de-cluttered and cleaned. Decide what to keep, pack those items, and properly label the boxes. Mark any boxes with fragile items to reduce the chance of damage. Any unwanted items should be thrown away, donated to a charity, or sold in a garage sale.

If a moving company, such as McGuire Movers, is contracted, items in dressers, desks, and closets need not be removed. Leave the clothes you want to keep hanging in the closets so the movers can easily transfer them from the hangers directly into wardrobe boxes. For furniture such as dressers and desks, movers will wrap them with furniture blankets and move them with the contents inside. In this way, people can save time in packing and unpacking boxes and in the cost of buying unnecessary packing supplies.

With the tech industry in the San Francisco Bay Area fueling a rise in home sales and moves, tips like these can help buyers and sellers easily transition and settle into their new homes. To get more moving tips, contact the experts at McGuire Movers at (415)307-2002. McGuire Movers is an established moving company that can move both locally in the Bay Area and longer distances.

Military Ground Robot Mobile Platform Systems of Engagement: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2019

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

Military Ground Robot Mobile Platform Systems of Engagement: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2019 - Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as platforms of engagement leverage mobile device capability worldwide. Even as the US presence in Iraq and Afghanistan winds down, automated process implemented as mobile platform systems of engagement are being used to fight terrorists and protect human life. These robots are a new core technology in which all governments must invest.

Military ground robot market growth comes from the device marketing experts inventing a new role as technology poised to be effective at the forefront of fighting terrorism. Markets at $ 4.5 billion in 2013 will reach $ 12.0 billion by 2019. Growth is based on the adoption of automated process by military organizations worldwide. This automated process implemented as a combination of software for innovation and robotic platforms is not the traditional military system.

In the last decade, the U.S. military poured money into unmanned ground systems to help protect troops against improvised explosive devices. There is the issue that the Defense Department needs to repurpose all those robots once the war in Afghanistan comes to a close. The wider market for military ground robots will develop as a mechanism to fight terrorism in response to the bombings in Boston and elsewhere. Bombing of civilians is a very serious matter and needs to be addressed with mobile platforms that prevent terrorist acts.

While the Armys committed to unmanned ground systems, appears to be slowing, this commitment is anticipated to heat up again quickly. The investment priorities are anticipated to change as the Defense Department realizes that investments in ground robots are needed to fight terrorism everywhere.
