"Solar Thermoelectric Energy Harvesting for Residential Scale Combined Heat and Electricity"
The objective of this project is to provide heat and electricity to a single-family home from concentrated solar energy using thermoelectric modules.Although solar thermal energy can generate both electricity and heat, application has been limited to utility-scale power generation due to expensive parts and high installation costs.This work will develop and examine the feasibility of a combined thermoelectric and heat system that exploits a low-profile economic solar tracker.
