The volume of machine-type communication devices (e.g., sensors) is expected to be massive and widespread worldwide to support various upcoming 5G-and-beyond applications. Thereby, spectrum- and energy-efficiency should be some of the most prominent building blocks for the design of such systems. Energy harvesting (EH) via wireless power transfer can be used for enabling perpetual operation of wireless devices where connectivity rather than high throughput seems to be of prime importance. On another front, cognitive radio (CR) has emerged as one of the most promising technologies to resolve the issue of spectrum scarcity. Consequently, CR and EH can be jointly utilized to achieve the above goal due to their complementary benefits. Motivated by the general interests towards green communications in emerging and future wireless systems, green cognitive relaying systems with EH capabilities will be presented. In this talk, we will highlight that the trade-off between sensing time and transmission/harvesting time duration is not a trivial problem. Furthermore, simultaneous spectrum sensing and data reception, effective number of transmit antennas and harvest-transmit trade-off for spatial multiplexed MIMO CR communication systems will be introduced as key requirements for energy-efficient CR systems. Finally, we will summarize some new results on interweave CR schemes for out-band EH systems.
