In this letter, we study the performance of Network Coding (NC)-aided cooperative communications in large scale networks, where the relays are able to harvest energy emitted by wireless transmissions. In particular, we derive theoretical expressions for key network performance metrics, i.e., the probability of successful data exchange and the network lifetime gain. The proposed analytical expressions are verified via extensive Monte Carlo simulations, demonstrating the potential benefits of the energy harvested by the wireless transmissions.
