Analysts from IDTechEx have predicted that Automotive Thermoelectric Generators (ATEG), known as thermoelectric energy harvesting, will be on production hybrid electric road vehicles starting in 2018. These analysts said this technology will be commonplace on hybrids in 2020 and almost entirely to charge the battery, or increasingly supercapacitor or supercabattery used for power. As explained […]
