Description

Increased population and pollution are largely contributing to energy crisis. In manufacturing and industrial power plants, a high amount of energy is wasted in the form of heat. Though some countries have restructured their electricity infrastructure with highly expensive processes, the electricity crisis still prevails. This energy and electricity crisis will be a threatening factor for social and economic growth. Energy harvesting is expected to play a major role in managing global energy demands and help in resolving related issues. Thermoelectric Energy Harvesting (TEH) technology comprising thermoelectric generators (TEGs) is a type of energy harvesting technology which is based on Seebeck effect. This aims to leverage thermal sources to generate electrical power and is intended for large-scale and small-scale applications.
TEGs have the potential to impact many applications including:
•     Automotive—Collision avoidance, regenerative braking, powering auto components
•     Industrial—Gas pipelines, geothermal, smart grid cogeneration thermoelectric generators, solar thermal cogeneration
•     Consumer electronics—Thermal heat generation from electronic components such as smartphones
•     Home and building automation—Smart metering, security system, home entertainment
•     Military and aerospace—Military avionics, space telescope cameras, missile testing systems
•     Healthcare—Wearable and implantable brain-computer interfaces (BCIs)

The technology and innovation report answers the following questions:
1.     What is the current status of TEH market?
2.     What are the factors that influence development and adoption?
3.     What are the innovation hotspots and who are the key developers?
4.     What are the patent and funding trends and how does it support development?
5.     What are the applications enabled by TEH?
6.     What is the market potential for TEH (forecast until 2025)?
7.     What are the key needs that drive customer satisfaction?
8.     Where do we see growth opportunities?
9.     What are the key questions for planning strategic initiatives to drive adoption?
