環境発電の国際イベント Energy Harvesting & Storage Europe 2009 (2009年6月3〜4日)

環境発電(エネルギー・ハーベスティング)の国際イベント(国際会議、展示会)が、英国ケンブリッジで、2009年6月3日〜4日に開催されます。
 
欧州で開催されますので、欧州勢が主体です。振動発電のEnOceanやPerpetuumも参加します。

環境発電関連の発表が多い国際会議には、日本発のPowerMEMSがありますが、発表は研究主体です。
それに比べると、このイベントは、市場をかなり意識しています。
携帯電話に関するNokia Research Centerの発表など興味深いです。

日程をそのまま貼り付けておきます。
