Recent developments in different areas have enabled the improvement and development of new energy harvesting technologies that could potentially be successfully employed for various railway applications. The state of development of energy harvesting solutions potentially suitable for integration in the railway environment to power trackside equipment has been reviewed and assessed. The general harvesting capacities and characteristics of potential energy harvesting technologies have been discussed, along with the general power usage requirements and characteristics of common types of trackside equipment. Conclusions have been drawn about the most suitable energy harvesting technologies, or combination of technologies to be incorporated into a combined energy harvesting and storage power supply for different trackside equipment.
