Manuscript Abstract
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) facilitate many different applications in all commercial, civilian and military fields, currently. Energy efficiency is always a critical issue since the networks are often deployed in harsh conditions which may not easily be accessed by human. However, there are always solutions to support back the WSNs. In other words, the networks can harvest energy from environments around since many wireless resources with unlimited energy that can be exploited. This editorial article introduces and also recommends some common energy harvesting technologies available for the networks to be able to support back the pre-charged and rechargeable batteries. This work does not only focus on RF and solar energy resources but also the most common resources to support the networks. Benefits and challenges for harvesting the energy are mentioned and discussed to be able to point out the optimal ways for each scenario suitable to each working condition. The work aims to show the best solutions for the networks to prolong the network lifetime.
