Prof FENG's team invented a Direct Thermal Charging Cell (DTCC) for efficiently converting low-grade heat to electricity. DTCCs have uniqueness and advantages for practical application including a wide operation window, isothermal and continuous charging/discharging operation, low-cost, bendable, simple system, and the ability to form stacks of cells. It may be the key to unlocking the potential of heat-to-electricity conversion. By establishing startup and collaborating with industries, the invention is moving from academic research toward real products in various applications.
