This literature review illustrates the efficient design, basic history, and effective output of piezoelectric nanogenerators (PENGs) and pyroelectric nanogenerators (PyNGs) with the varieties of materials used in both the research to possible real-time applications. The review suggests that the thermoelectric nanogenerator (TENGs) will provide more open circuit voltage and power generated to the current state of art PENGs structure. The Study also discusses the standard circuit used in the generation of electricity during the operation of PENGs. Overall, the effective materials for the future, figure of merit (FOM), Seebeck effect and applications for TENGs and PENGs are studied.
