Apple to use heat recovery technology?

“Apple is purportedly talking to small development company Eneco, which has developed a chip that converts heat into electricity. If it works, it could have a big impact on how IT equipment, and in particular laptops and other mobile devices, are designed and powered. However, there are still several technological issues to be resolved,” Dennis Sellers reports for Macsimum News.

Sellers reports, “According to articles at Green Business News and Macworld UK, Dr Lew Brown, president and CEO of Eneco, told investors that its new chip technology ‘will revolutionize the way we generate electricity.'”

Sellers reports, “Eneco is a development stage company that claims to have invented and patented a ‘solid state energy conversion/generation chip’ that will convert heat directly into electricity or alternatively refrigerate down to -200 degrees celsius when electricity is applied.”
