Scientists Turns Heat into Electricity
In the quest for efficient ways to directly convert heat into electricity, University of California at Berkeley researchers announced Thursday that they have generated electricity from heat using organic molecules and metal nanoparticles.
If the method of electricity creation using waste heat can scale up to mass production, the technology could open up significant business opportunities to developing new sources of energy.
