Discovering new technological approaches for energy efficiency
Increase of energy efficiency is essential in view of achieving the climate objectives. In this regard, functional materials with all their outstanding properties can make an important contribution in this context.
In the »Thermal Energy Converters« business unit we develop efficient and environmentally friendly cooling systems, heat pumps and thermoelectric generators on the basis of innovative functional materials. These are used for turning hitherto unexploited waste heat into electrical energy or for efficient cooling without harmful refrigerants, to name but two examples.
Beyond this, we are working on the development of novel heat pipes for efficient and passive cooling of electronic parts.
