Innovative Method to Efficiently Harvest Low-Grade Heat for Energy

Researchers from UNIST and Nanyang Technological University have developed a Thermally Regenerative Electrochemical Cycle (TREC) system, offering a novel approach to convert low-grade heat into usable energy. This system, enhanced by understanding the role of structural vibration modes, particularly in water molecules, shows potential in improving energy conversion from small temperature differences. Such advancements in TREC systems could revolutionize the use of low-grade heat in wearable technologies and secondary batteries.
