As human population and the demands of better standards of life increase in the 21st century, a sudden surge in energy demand is predicted and the accompanying environmental problems will become a subject of discussion. The establishment of an energy system that uses renewable energy is attracting attention as a possible answer to these problems. This article presents a discussion on one energy harvesting method that has been the focus of attention recently: the generation system based on electroactive polymer artificial muscle (EPAM).
