Demonstration of Thermoelectric Glass

Abstract—This paper investigate the feasibility of embedding thermoelectric generator modules within buildings external glass in places where high temperature difference is present between indoor and outdoor, such as areas with extreme hot or extreme cold weather, these modules will work as small individual electrical generators, which then get electrically connected in parallel or series depending on the required voltage, and/or current, the electricity generated can then be used as any other renewable source. This paper describes a prototype design, build, test, and the actual results while testing during the hot summer of Dubai, UAE, where exterior temperature was in the range of 40s Co while indoor temperature in the range of 20s Co, then discuss the challenges involved in the setup, and its feasibility in this part of the world.
