 Project objective

Approximately 90% of the world's power is generated by fossil fuel combustion engines. These typically operate at 25-40% efficiency, such that globally ~15 TW is wasted as heat. Thermoelectric (TE) generators, which convert heat flow into useful electrical power, can potentially convert part of the waste heat to electricity and provide economic savings and environmental sustainability. TE modules can also be used as self-powered sensors in mobile applications, wearable electronics, etc. especially when connection to mains is limited, which makes them ideal for the ‘Internet of Things’ concept as well.

One of the main challenges of the TE research area and industry is the identification and design of optimal materials out of the myriad possibilities of alloys and new generation material combinations.

The GENESIS project addresses this challenge through advanced theory and simulations by constructing a well-validated, open-access generic computational machinery that can be used to simulate the thermoelectric (TE) properties of arbitrary targeted materials by using as input their electronic and phononic bandstructures. This will support the TE community in forecasting whether a particular material can be really suitable, as well as by providing better understanding of measurements, enabling time and cost reductions, which will accelerate the experimental efforts. Such a timely needed computational machinery is currently missing. Thus, the projects bridges the current gap between theory and experiment in the design of TE materials, and will allow the Experienced Researcher to establish himself as a computational materials scientist specialized in electro-thermal transport.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "GENESIS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
