Energy Harvesting 2024

Date: Wednesday 01 May 2024
Location: Stafford Cripps Building (41), Cranfield University, MK43 0AL [Download Campus Map]

Energy Harvesting Network's one-day dissemination event is back! Join us at our 12th event for an exciting day of talks ranging from indoor photovoltaics to thermoelectrics, from nano-materials to nonlinear dynamics, from application-based industrial case studies to latest advances in academic research, and much more.
  • Hear invited talks from academic & industrial experts on the state-of-the-art of EH
  • See technology demonstrations & posters from researchers and students
  • Network with a broad mix of industrial and academic delegates within the EH field
  • Go on a lab tour of the unique facilities at Cranfield University
  • Registration is free, including lunch!
The event is sponsored by EnerHarv 2024, and supported by Innovate UK Business Connect.


Registration is free, which includes lunch. Please register online. Spaces are limited, and allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

Call for Posters and Demos

Researchers, postdocs and research students are encouraged to present posters and/or demonstrations of their research at the event. You can apply within the online registration form to reserve a poster and/or demo slot. Spaces are limited, and allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
  • Poster presentations: Poster presentation for students and researchers to present their latest EH research and concepts.

  • Demonstrations: Tables are available for demonstrations of EH technology. Researchers, postdocs and research students are invited to bring along their device/component or prototype to the event.

  • Posters and Demos will be judged for Best Poster/Demo Award.
