Combining Concentrated Solar Power and Thermoelectric Materials Raises Efficiency

Researchers at the University of Houston and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have reported a substantial advance in generating electricity through a combination of concentrating solar power and thermoelectric materials. By combining concentrating solar power – which converts light into heat that is then used to generate electricity – with segmented [...]
