#NanoKTN calls for UK investment in #thermoelectrics #nanotechnology

The paper follows a workshop run by the NanoKTN to explore emerging technologies and opportunities in the development of next generation thermoelectric and thermionic devices. The event which sparked the report saw presentations from key industry players in industry and academia, highlighted the commercial potential in harvesting energy from waste heat, the significant barriers to increasing conversion efficiency and finding alternative, sustainable, thermoelectric materials. Thermal energy harvesting (and solid state cooling) represents a global £1billion industry for improved products in a range of markets and application scenarios. Despite the existing barriers to widespread adoption, the NanoKTN believes that nanotechnology offers the potential for new approaches and a paradigm shift in performance, through nanomaterials development, nanostructuring, nano and microelec...
