New Technologies for Energy Harvesting and Thermal Management

We know that energy is all around us, but how exactly do we harness it? To start things off this week, we take a closer look at an interesting new energy harvesting technology developed at MIT called a “thermal resonator.” By utilizing the gradual ambient temperature changes that occur over the course of a day, this technology can literally pull electricity out of the thin air. We check out how this “thermal resonator” works and what sets it apart from other thermoelectric applications found on the market today. Keeping with our thermal theme, we also chat with Thierry Wastiaux (Interface Concept) about the best practices for thermal management in HPEC VPX Systems.
