Thermoelectric generators are devices which convert temperature differences
into electrical energy. The principle phenomenon that underpins thermoelectric
energy generation is known as the Seebeck effect: the conversion of a
temperature differential into electricity at the junction of two materials.
Although thermoelectric phenomena have been used for heating and cooling
applications quite extensively, electricity generation has only seen very
limited market in niche applications and it is only in recent years that
interest has increased regarding new applications of energy generation through
Included in the report are interviews with potential adopters of
thermoelectric energy harvesters and their views of the impact that the
technology could have over their respective industries.
