Creating energy from an external and sometimes unexpected source can help power operations like never before. An electrified road that charges electric cars and the creation of a bio-fuel from mushroom waste represent different approaches. Now, engineers at the University of California, have formed a system that captures energy commonly lost from everyday objects. Almost 70 percent of energy the US produces every year is waste heat. Cars, computers, and industrial sites are some of the things that emit this heat. Applying the new thin film system to such sources can prevent wasted heat and produce energy.
