If there is enough of a temperature difference available, a thermoelectric device is a great alternative for batteries.
Thermoelectric Generators (TEGs) can be used to power a range of applications such as, wireless sensor networks and other communication systems, as replacements for batteries. Thermoelectric energy harvesting is an excellent alternative to batteries because they offer a more environmentally friendly solution, and therefore, they eliminate the need to replace any parts. This also makes it possible to place thermoelectric devices where it would be impossible to replace batteries, such as harsh or hazardous environments.
Thermoelectric devices are compact, light weight, solid state with no moving parts, silent in operation and require virtually no maintenance.
