MEMS Energy Harvester for Reusing Waste Heat

During our recent webinar with COMSOL on thermal-structure interaction modeling, we at AltaSim Technologies demonstrated modeling of a MEMS energy harvester that scavenges waste heat. Examples of sources for waste heat range from microprocessor chips, to internal combustion engines, to chemical processing plants. If the waste heat generated from these cases could be used to generate additional energy, then overall energy consumption could be reduced. Estimates from CANMET Energy Technology Centre indicate that worldwide, waste heat exceeds 1 TJ annually.
