40 Nanomaterials for Thermal-to-Electric Conversion

Sunday, November 13, 2016: 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Golden Gate 8 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
More than 80% of current world energy needs are met through fossil fuels and more than 60% of this energy is released to the environment as "waste heat". Recent efforts to convert either solar-thermal or waste heat energy into electricity will be presented here, along with present challenges and opportunities.
