BGU researchers are working on converting heat into electricity, which could dramatically reduce the need for fossil fuels.
Car engines waste 70 percent of incoming energy as heat, mostly expelled by their exhaust systems. BGU’s Laboratory of Thermoelectrics collaborates with major players in the auto industry, including Rolls-Royce and Jaguar, to minimize energy loss by channeling heat into electricity to help run the car.
Aside from being environmentally friendly, the benefits of thermoelectric power generation and cooling include high reliability; silent and vibration-free operation; minimal maintenance and lifecycle costs; and the absence of compressed gasses and chemicals.
