Can body heat create usable electricity via the clothes we wear?
Greater London Talk
The drive to create a more sustainable alternative for batteries has resulted in novel research focused on materials that can self-harvest their energy. Thermoelectric generation, or the ability to create electrical energy from human body waste heat, is one such innovation that will shape the future of smart textiles, further develop industries such as at-home care, and give opportunities to developing nations.
Member Samantha Newby, a PhD student at Manchester, invites members to join her on her green journey as she dives into the future of sustainable energy and smart textiles.
