Cost-effective Thermoelectric Conversion of Waste Heat to Electricity
Impulse Technology LLC, PA, United States
Our goal is to develop and commercialize a Thermo-electric (TE) conversion product that is at least 25% efficient and 10x less expensive than current approaches, will scavenge waste heat by converting it to electricity. The electricity can be used by the customer directly or stored in batteries or ultra-capacitors.
Primary Application Area: Energy & Efficiency
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Our Thermoelectric product will provide a cost-effective solution to an energy harvesting problem that has been bottle-necked for decades because of the low efficiency of the technology. Conversion of ever increasing waste heat at data Centers will produce electricity to feed their power needs and will save billions of dollars.
