Researchmoz presents this most up-to-date research on Thermoelectric Energy Harvesting Market -Devices, Applications, Opportunities 2014-2024 (http://www.researchmoz.us/thermoelectric-energy-harvesting-2014-2024-devices-applications-opportunities-report.html ). Thermoelectric generators are devices which convert temperature differences into electrical energy. The principle phenomenon that underpins thermoelectric energy generation is known as the See beck effect: the conversion of a temperature differential into electricity at the junction of two materials. Although thermoelectric phenomena have been used for heating and cooling applications quite extensively, electricity generation has only seen very limited market in niche applications and it is only in recent years that interest has increased regarding new applications of energy generation through thermoelectric harvesting. The new applications are varied and the vertical markets benefiting from new devices range from condition monitoring in industrial environments, smart metering in energy market segments, to thermoelectric applications in vehicles, either terrestrial or other. This report gives an overview of devices, materials and manufacturing processes, with a specific focus on emerging technologies that allow for new functionality, form factor and application in various demanding environments. Whether it is operation in high temperatures or corrosive environments, applications with increased safety demands or components that need to be thin, flexible, or even stretchable, there is a lot of research and development work worldwide which is highlighted.
Included in the report are interviews with potential adopters of thermoelectric energy harvesters and their views of the impact that the technology could have over their respective industries. Some of the application sectors include:
Waste heat recovery systems in vehicles: A large number of car companies, including Volkswagen, VOLVO, FORD and BMW in collaboration with NASA have been developing thermoelectric waste heat recovery systems in-house, each achieving different types of performance but all of them expecting to lead to improvements of 3-5% in fuel economy while the power generated out of these devices could potentially reach up to 1200W.
Wireless sensor network adoption.
Wireless sensors powered by thermogenerators in environments where temperature differentials exist would lead to avoiding issues with battery lifetime and reliability. It would also lead to the ability to move away from wired sensors, which are still the solution of choice when increased reliability of measurement is necessary.
Some applications have low enough power demands to operate with small temperature differentials, as small as a few degrees in some cases.
These types of developments increase adoption trends.
Consumer applications: In these applications, the type of solution that thermogenerators provide varies:
it could be related to saving energy when cooking by utilising thermo-powered cooking sensors, powering mobile phones, watches or other consumer electronics, even body sensing could become more widespread with sensory wristbands, clothing or athletic apparel that monitor vitals such as heart rate, body temperature, etc.

Photovoltaic Inverter Market Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth And Forecast, 2013 - 2019 (http://www.researchmoz.us/photovoltaic-inverter-market-global-industry-analysis-market-size-share-trends-analysis-growth-and-forecast-2013-2019-report.html ) A photovoltaic (PV) inverter, also known as solar inverter is a device that converts the variable direct current (DC) output of a PV panel into alternating current (AC) frequency. This frequency can directly used by off-grid and local electrical network or can be fed into a commercial network. PV inverter is significant element in a photovoltaic system, allowing direct use of commercial appliances. These inverters have special functions that allow them to use with photovoltaic arrays, having functions such as anti-islanding protection and maximum power point tracking. There are various design modifications in PV inverters such as Stand-alone inverters, Grid-tie inverters and Battery backup inverters. Each design varies according to area of its application. However, special elements such as solar charge controller may incorporate in to the inverter system. One of the major driving factors for this market is growing solar photovoltaic industry. Additionally, the growing demand for energy coupled with regulatory framework that supports clean energy are also driving the market for PV inverters market. However, substitute clean energy technologies such as hydropower are holding back the market in some regions. With the technological development in solar photovoltaic market, PV inverter market is expected to face boom in demand.
Syngas And Derivatives Market (http://www.researchmoz.us/syngas-and-derivatives-market-global-industry-analysis-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2013-2019-report.html ) Syngas, also known as synthesis gas, is a mixture of gases consisting primarily of carbon monoxide, hydrogen and often carbon dioxide. Syngas is often used as a fuel for internal combustion engines as this gas is combustible. This gas is used as an intermediate in producing synthetic natural gas (SNG) thus it is called as syngas. Industrially, syngas is used to produce ammonia; methanol and it can be turned in to electricity through gasification process. Syngas plays a vital role in the production of synthetic petroleum as an intermediate which are used as a lubricant or fuel. Comparing the energy densities, natural gas has more than twice the energy density of syngas. The production of syngas is carried out by the methods such as the gasification of biomass, coal, steam reforming of liquid hydrocarbons or natural gas to produce hydrogen and other waste-to-energy gasification processes. Syngas as well as its derivatives have a significant number of applications in end-user industries namely chemical, liquid fuels, gaseous fuels and power generation.
Blowout Preventer Market - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 -2019 (http://www.researchmoz.us/blowout-preventer-market-global-industry-analysis-market-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2013--2019-report.html ) Blowout preventer (BOP) is a mechanical device that is used to seal, control and monitor oil and gas wells. Once sealed, it allows access to the wellbore below the BOP to control the well. They are developed to control high pressure and turbulent flow emerging from a well reservoir during exploration phase. Blowout preventers are essential to the safety of workers, drilling rig and environment. Blowout preventers are also used to carry out routine operational tasks such as formation strength tests and casing. Installation of blowout preventer at the drilling site is a mandatory requirement.
Blowout preventer can be segmented based on the type such as ram and annular. Both are frequently used together in drilling rigs. Ram blowout preventer are of four major types: pipe rams, blind rams, shear rams and blind shear rams. Advanced technologies of ram BOPs has directed towards deeper and high pressure wells, low maintenance and greater reliability. Major components used in BOP system are low marine riser package, the BOP stack and the control system.
Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019 (http://www.researchmoz.us/electrostatic-precipitator-esp-market-global-industry-analysis-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2013-2019-report.html ) Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) are a filtration device used for removing fine particulate matter from an exhaust gas by means of an electrostatic force. ESPs possess high collection efficiency and can handle large gas volumes at high temperatures. This renders them vital to heavy industries such as steel mills & cement plants, and especially to thermal power plants. Combustion processes in coal-fired power plants receive a performance boost with the use of ESPs. They also act as conditioning systems for the fly ash and flue gases produced during the process.Environmental, Health, & Safety guidelines emphasize the need for better air quality & air pollution control, something achievable to a great extent with the use of ESPs. This industry is aiming towards higher efficiency numbers, especially in coal-fired electricity generation. Increased adoption of newer technologies & subsequent renovation by existing power plants prove to be very attractive opportunities for this market in the future. Since demand for thermal power generation is not going to recede, the threat level for the ESP industry is minimal.
