Energy harvesting approaches are of increasing interest in the context of Wireless Sensor Networks. Energy harvesting as a source of intermittent power offers significant opportunities to extend the operating lifetime of sensors in a number of key application areas, including environmental monitoring and healthcare. This paper surveys existing simulation tool support, and highlights through experimentation the need for more expressive modelling approaches, and presents visions to enhance simulation support for EH-WSN.
