This paper presents an overall review of Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting, starting with the importance of the abundance of mechanical energy that can be harvested into electrical energy, and how piezoelectric materials can be part of this achievement. A clear description of the piezoelectric phenomenon is intended to be described, with the different structural configuration that piezoelectric energy harvesting gives. An elaborate information about the different piezoelectric materials that we can find nowadays is covered, intending to present a wide overview about the actual status of piezoelectric materials. The many applications that piezoelectric energy harvesting can have are considered in almost all possible fields, giving a clear perspective of the present and future areas where mechanical energy can be harvested by piezoelectric materials. This work reviews recent literature in the field of power harvesting and provides the current status of energy harvesting and the multiples options where this can be applied.
