A University of Colorado at Boulder team of engineers has developed a new device that you can wear like a ring or bracelet and that harvests power from your own body heat energy. The device, described in a paper published in the journal Science Advances, is stretchy enough that you can wear it like a […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) scientists have now developed three-dimensional component architectures based on novel, printable thermoelectric materials. Thermoelectric generators, TEGs for short, convert ambient heat into electrical power. They enable maintenance-free, environmentally friendly, and autonomous power supply of the continuously growing number of sensors and devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) and […]

Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) scientists have now come much closer to their goal of converting waste heat into electrical power at small temperature differences. Electrical power per footprint of thermomagnetic generators based on Heusler alloy films has been increased by a factor of 3.4. The use of waste heat would contribute in a large […]

New research at the University of Warwick shows waste heat can be converted to electricity more efficiently using one-dimensional nanoscale materials as thin as an atom. This suggests there may be a new way of generating sustainable energy. Led by Drs. Andrij Vasylenko, Samuel Marks, Jeremy Sloan and David Quigley from Warwick’s Department of Physics, […]
