Ecological awareness is all important for our environment. How to transfer the waste heat to electric power from exhaust pipes is discussed, which might serve to decrease the consumption of petroleum. We have presented a model of a thermal resistor network to estimate the power generated with thermoelectric generator (TEG) modules and investigated a concept of harvesting waste heat with TEG in automobile applications. To apply the high performance of new nanocrystalline TE materials into the developed TEG module would be very important for the automobiles in future.
