Thermoelectric generators are used to recover waste heat from industrial applications, automobiles, and even body heat of human beings. While recovering heat from vehicles and industries, the amount of power generated can range between 50 watts to a few hundred watts. Though not very high the electricity from the recovered heat can be used to power small electronic devices in the car or in domestic applications. Materials used to manufacture thermocouples include skutterdite, lead telluride, and half hueslers. For generating electrical power in terms of milli and microwatts, the main inorganic material used is bismuth telluride. The modules based on bismuth tellluride are brittle and can recover heat even at room temperatures. Modules that are flexible and capable of generating power from small temperature differences are being considered for applications such as wearable devices and sensors. Organic Conductive polymers enable manufacturing these flexible modules in a cost-effective manner.

The Energy and Power Systems (EPS) TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides insights on the latest advances in the broad range of technology related to the energy industry. The topics regularly presented range from energy storage technologies (batteries, fuel cells, flywheels and other advanced energy storage devices) to non-renewable energy such as oil and gas. Special emphasis is given to emerging areas in the renewable sector such as photovoltaics, wind energy, and geothermal energy, and emerging alternative fuels such as hydrogen, syngas, ethanol and biofuels. The EPS TOE keeps clients abreast of the latest R&D developments at major corporate and academic research centers, provides competitor intelligence and helps create strategic alliances.

The Energy and Environment cluster provides global insights and intelligence on a wide variety of disruptive emerging technologies and platforms ranging from energy storage, advanced batteries, solar and wind energy, to unconventional oil, bioenergy, geothermal energy, and energy transmission.
