What’s thermoelectric generation?

Thermoelectric generation is a conversion technology using voltage formed by temperature difference between edges of electrically conductive materials.
This phenomenon is called Seebeck effect.



Electrical energy can be generated by connecting p- and n-type thermoelectric devices

Advantage of thermoelectric conversion

 Generation by temperature difference
      ・・・From small to large scale generation.

 Direct conversion from heat to electricity
      ・・・No exhaust, no noise.  
 No moving parts
      ・・・Easy maintenance, long life time,
            low running cost.
High power density
      ・・・Small size, light weight.
            Good for portable use.
