If there is enough of a temperature difference available, a thermoelectric generator module (TEG) is a great alternative for batteries. They can be used to power a range of applications such as wireless sensors and communication systems, as replacements for batteries. This is because they offer a more environmentally friendly solution, and because they eliminate the need to replace a battery that has run out. This also makes it possible to place these systems 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.
