New technological approaches for greater energy efficiency
Increasing energy efficiency is an essential building block for achieving climate targets.
In the »Thermal Energy Converters« business unit, Fraunhofer IPM develops efficient and environmentally friendly cooling systems, heat pumps or thermoelectric modules and generators. These are used, for example, for the direct conversion of otherwise unused waste heat into electricity and for efficient cooling without environmentally harmful refrigerants.
We are also working on the development of new types of heat pipes and thermal switches for the efficient and passive cooling of electronic components.
