3D Printed Brick Generates Electricity

An international team of scientists, led by King’s College London, have developed a thermogalvanic brick that generates electricity as long as the two faces of the brick are at different temperatures. For more information see the IDTechEx report on Distributed Generation: Minigrid Microgrid Zero Emission 2018-2038.  This is due to balanced ‘electrochemical’ reduction and oxidation processes occurring inside the brick at the two faces.  Read more...
