In the recent past there has been a significant increase in the research on vibration-based energy harvesting. Wherever mechanical movement exists, a lot of heat and vibration energy is wasted which could be used and converted as a supplement to the energy requirements. Towards this objective this project aims to provide a general theory that can be used for generating electricity from vibrating as well as heat body and store the acquired energy using advanced component called the super capacitor. A combination of Cantilever beam and MMA sensor is used for the sensing vibratory motion and the Peltier sensor is used for sensing the temperature of the source. The output obtained from the former source is converted into voltage using MMA technology and the latter is converted directly into the same. Boosted voltage is stored effectively with the help of super capacitor in primary storage device. The acquired voltage from the battery is 12V with respect to this project. For the AC load, the current produced are 300mA. The output would change with respect to the vibrating and the temperature sources like generators or automotive engines
