We study the strain-induced voltage generation, i.e., piezovoltage, in a two-dimensional electron system under a magnetic field at low temperature. We find its strong magnetic-field dependence, where the voltage increases up to several microvolts at the boundaries between localized and extended electronic states. The order of magnitude of the generated electrical power is comparable to that of the energy dissipation in mechanical vibration, indicating high-efficiency mechanical-to-electrical energy transduction.
