      Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), due to their low cost, energy consumption, and robust communications, present a promising solution for retro-fitting to existing buildings for optimal building control. With the building sector contributing to 30-40% of global CO2 emissions, it is vital to address home and building energy management.
      Smart meters are part of this trend where a meter does not just measure or protect, but can provide
      valuable information and allow interaction with the system. Additional capabilities and processing
      power can be obtained by deploying a wireless sensor network system, with autonomous processing
      nodes, capable of cooperation and reasoning that can provide an intelligent energy management. This
      paper discusses the main challenges in creating an autonomous WSN and evaluates energy
      harvesting techniques capable of powering wireless sensor nodes in an occupied building
