Panasonic’s Thermoelectric Hot Water Pipes Generate 7.5 Watts Of Power Per Foot.

Panasonic is designing an improved system to generate thermoelectric power by making it more efficient. Thermoelectric power is created via temperature differences – in this case, between the hot and cold water running through your house. Attempts to generate thermoelectric power in the past have been unsuccessful due to the amount of heat lost in the process.
