Development of Highly Efficient Thermoelectric Materials and Systems

Research Project Outline

In order to contribute to suppressing CO2 emission by reduc-ing the usage of fossil fuels through improvement in the efficiency of energy utilization, highly efficient thermoelectric materials composed of non-toxic and resource-abundant cheap elements will be developed and assembled into Ther-moelectric devices and systems to harvest electric power from heat coming out of industries, vehicles, etc. and also from natural heat such as solar heat, geoheat, etc.
