Researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas have developed a generator model that uses liquid metal to convert waste heat into clean electricity. The waste heat used by the generator is derived from electric cars, data centers and other similar sources. The technology has several potential applications such as improving the efficiency of electric vehicles by converting the heat from their batteries into electricity. Likewise, data centers can turn all the waste heat that the computers generate into energy. The research shall be a launchpad for fresh research in the domain of clean energy technologies.
