A substantial advance in generating electricity has now been realized through a combination of concentrating solar power and thermoelectric materials. By combining concentrating solar power — which converts light into heat that is then used to generate electricity — with segmented thermoelectric legs, made up of two different thermoelectric materials, each working at different temperature ranges, researchers said they have demonstrated a promising new alternative solar energy technology.
