Triboelectric effect has been recently demonstrated as a potential method to harvest mechanical energy from various sources in the surroundings which will otherwise be go wasted. Triboelectric effect is a type of contact electrification that results in the generation of surface charge as two different materials are put in contact with each other. The charging of surfaces occurs due to difference in tendencies of the materials to attract and donate electrons. Different tendencies of materials to attract or donate electrons arises due to chemical property of material known as electronegativity.
