We now have academic confirmation of Thermopower. The Department of Chemical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Advanced Institute of Nanotechnology, Department of Energy Science and School of Mechanical Engineering, Sungkyunkwan University, Gyeonggi, Korea have published an article in Nature on May 7th entitled, Chemically driven carbon-nanotube-guided thermopower waves which verifies that Thermopower is a new and powerful way to transform heat to electricity.
Thermopower is the first new method of converting heat to electricity discovered in the last two centuries. Once it is developed into a commercial product, it will obsolete all need to burn any form of fossil fuels (even biofuels). Development has been delayed due to the lack of investment capital, a result of the current Depression. But, when it comes, Thermopower promises to destroy most fossil-fuel based energy companies and revolutionize our society.
