Generating electricity from heat is nothing new, but manufacturing thermo-electric generators and devices cost-effectively has eluded developers, said Bert Amick, the inventor and now chief technology officer at Berken. Amick developed a way to apply semiconductor materials, such as lead or silicon, to a thin-film substrate, or bottom material, such as glass, copper or aluminum. By using thin film, the company can cost-effectively manufacture semiconductor sheets in bulk that generate electricity from heat. The sheets can be used in generators or other devices for many purposes, and scaled up or down as needed, Amick said. "The thin film is what makes it possible," Amick said.
