Substantial advance in generating electricity

Researchers Report Advance in Low-Cost Clean Energy Generation

Researchers at the University of Houston and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have reported a substantial advance in generating electricity through a combination of concentrating solar power and thermoelectric materials.

By combining concentrating solar power – which converts light into heat that is then used to generate electricity – with segmented thermoelectric legs, made up of two different thermoelectric materials, each working at different temperature ranges, researchers said they have demonstrated a promising new alternative solar
energy technology.

Their findings are published in Nature Energy.

UH is in great company.
