Today's wasted heat could become tomorrow's clean energy - Greenbang

Today’s wasted heat could become tomorrow’s clean energy Published Thursday, 30th June 2011 A new type of thermoelectric tube can capture heat from a variety of sources — from hot springs to industrial waste heat — and convert it efficiently into electric power . Converting heat into energy using thermoelectric technology could prove to be an important source of renewable power. Conventional thermoelectric generators, however, have complex structures and are restricted to planar shapes, making them difficult to scale up and implement. But a new type of thermoelectric tube from Panasonic could eliminate those limitations. The new tubes use an unconventional phenomenon called transverse thermoelectric effect, which takes place in a tilted environment featuring multiple layers of thermally-resistive thermoelectric materials and thermally-conductive metals. This effect makes i...
