It is well-known that electrical power can be generated with solar energy, chemical processes, or magnets, but did you know that thermal energy can be translated directly into electricity as well? This is a phenomenon known as thermoelectricity, where electrical current is can be generated by a temperature difference in a conductor.

This website explains thermoelectricity, its applications, and current advancements in its study.
