The article presents a discussion about utilization of waste heat. It is noted that waste heat can be converted into electricity with the use of thermoelectric generators. Some sources of waste heat are computers, mobile phones and vehicles. It is asserted that efficiency of thermoelectric devices are being improved by scientists and engineers in order for thermoelectricity to be used everyday.
