Dr. Wang, author of the research “Nanogenerator as Mobile Power Source for Internet of Things and for Large-Scale Blue Energy Harvesting”, invented the triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) and established the principle and technological road map for harvesting random mechanical energy from environment and biological systems for powering mobile sensors. He first showed that the TENG is originated from the Maxwell’s displacement current, revived the applications of Maxwell’s equations in energy and sensors, which is 155 years later after the invention of electromagnetic wave based on displacement current. TENG has killer applications at relatively low operation frequency (<0.1-5 Hz), providing a new platform technology for harvesting energy from our daily life and living environment. TENGs have broad applications for harvesting energy from human activities, rotating tires, ocean waves, mechanical vibration and more, with great applications in self-powered systems for personal electronics, environmental monitoring, medical science and even large-scale blue energy from ocean water wave.
Launched in 2007 to recognise the best studies on efficiency, sustainability and environmental protection, the annual Eni Award is an international prize for applied research in the field of energy. Every year the competition involves many of the most important scientific institutions in the world as well as Eni's own in-house laboratories.
