OSAKA, Japan, June 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Global Energy Harvesting System Market size is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% over the forecast period and reach a market size of USD 1,183 million by 2030. Over the last decade, the research and development community has grown increasingly interested in harvesting energy from non-conventional environmental sources for low-power applications. Despite the small amount of energy harvested, it is suitable for wireless sensor nodes and other low-power applications. There is a lot of wasted energy in the environment that can be converted into energy to power various applications, revealing a potentially inexpensive power source. However, energy harvesting systems are important as they provide a backup and alternative source of power for electrical equipment in areas where conventional sources are prohibitively expensive. When used in conjunction with wireless sensor nodes and IoT devices, this system eliminates cables and batteries, lowers maintenance costs, eliminates the need for network-based energy and traditional batteries, and is environmentally friendly. It has the same advantage in remote areas, underwater, and other difficult-to-reach locations where conventional batteries and electricity are insufficient. As a result of these factors, there seems to be a significant focus on energy harvesting systems throughout all market segments.

(Bloomberg) -- Japan is offering oil from its national reserves as other nations kick off a coordinated release from strategic stockpiles to rein in prices. A government tender offered Oman crude from the strategic reserves in Shibushi for delivery between March and June, the trade ministry said in a statement dated Dec. 27. The tender didn’t specify a volume, give a reason for the sale, or confirm it was part of a U.S.-led initiative. The Biden administration started tapping the first of its pledged 50 million barrels of reserves not long after announcing the coordinated release in late November. South Korea said last week that it will start releasing crude and oil products from its strategic reserves next month, although other countries named as part of the plan -- including China and India -- have yet to act. Trade Minister Koichi Hagiuda said in November that Japan would conduct the release as it replaces oil in its stockpiles. While it does that regularly, the schedule has been moved up to support similar actions elsewhere, he added.

Japanese law permits the release of oil reserves in cases of a shortage or natural disasters but makes no mention of doing so to counter rising prices.
