Reduced Energy Consumption by Massive Thermoelectric Waste Heat Recovery in Light Duty Trucks (HeatReCar)
Start date: Nov 1, 2009, End date: Dec 31, 2012 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The main objective of the project is to reduce the energy consumption and curb CO2 emissions of vehicles by massively harvesting electrical energy from the heat within the exhaust system and re-use this energy to supply electrical components within the vehicle or to feed the powertrain of hy-brid electrical vehicles (HEV). The recovery of the thermal energy will be performed by novel, labo-ratory-available thermoelectric (TE) materials which are able to work at the adequate high tem-peratures and exhibit high performance.
