Aeinnova in Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB)
Throughout the 20th century, Humanity has experienced the most spectacular and vertiginous advances in all History. Much of this evolution is explained thanks to an energy model based on fossil fuels that, on one hand, have provided us with easy and abundant energy, but on the other, has put our Planet into a limiting situation.
It is evident that our survival as a species lies in a decisive transition towards a new social and energetic paradigm where renewable energies, circular economy and technology must necessarily be taken into account.
In this area, Energy Harvesting appears, a ubiquitous energy, composed of details, but which will become a key piece in our new world: the energy of movement, electromagnetic waves, salinity, noise, heat…
Raúl Aragonés, Chairman of AEInnova, and Dr. Carlos Ferrer, CSO, talked about the current situation of Energy Harvesting and how it will become a key element in a new energy paradigm of a hyperconnected world in front of 50 students in Energy Degree and VET at the CCCB, one of the most famous spaces for creation, research, exhibition and debate on contemporary culture.
It was a great experience sharing our knowledge about Energy Harvesting techniques with future energy professionals.
