MTPV Power Corporation

Overview: Micron-gap Thermal Photovoltaic (MTPV) makes semiconductor chips that convert heat directly into electricity. Much like a solar panel will convert sunlight into electricity, MTPV solutions are able to convert any source of heat into electricity with several significant advantages when compared to other chip based solutions. MTPV chips are able to generate 10 to 50 times more power, with 45 percent less heat/temperature than competitive technologies and are capable of generating 10-250 Kw/m² at efficiencies between 10-60 percent. MTPV solutions are solid-state, scalable, and create 100 percent green energy when converting waste heat to electricity.
