IIT-Delhi Researchers Develop Device to Generate Electricity from Raindrops

  • Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Delhi researchers have designed a device that can generate electricity from water drops, raindrops, water streams, and ocean waves which can be stored in batteries for further use.
  • The device has been developed using "Triboelectric Effect" and "Electrostatic Induction". It is called "Liquid-solid Interface Triboelectric Nanogenerator".
  • The device has a very simple structure consisting of specially designed nanocomposite polymers and contact electrodes and can generate a few Milliwatt (mW) power, which is sufficient to power small electronic devices like watches, digital thermometers, radio frequency transmitters, healthcare sensors, pedometers. When compared to conventional methods, such as the use of the piezoelectric effect, the present device can generate significantly more electricity.
