Life without electricity is unimaginable now-a-days. Electricity has become a part and parcel of the peoples' lives. An experimental RF energy harvesting system to harvest energy from cell towers is presented in this paper. An electromagnetically-coupled E- Shapedmicrostrip antenna with an antenna gain of 4dB is designed and fabricated for deployment in the presented system. A Schottky diode based seven-stage voltage doubler has also been designed and simulated for DC voltage generation. Simulated results show that 2.5 V is obtained at the output.
