The development of piezoelectric energy harvesting (EH) materials, methods and techniques have progressed significantly in the past couple of decades. Especially with the advent of low-power electronic devices and internet of things (IoT) sensors, there is a strong desire to implement the EH principles to make these devices self-powered. The chapter reviews the development of piezoelectric polymers, their operating principles, and energy conversion mechanism followed by some of the most recent examples of the advances in the area. Developments in the area of magnetic nanoparticle enhanced piezoelectric EH using magnetic-piezoelectric nanocomposites are discussed further.
