The Peltier effect is normally used to pump heat. By combining two Peltier modules in a dual layer, large temperature-differences can be obtained. As a result, more electricity can be produced more efficiently.

Seebeck devices are used to generate electricity, in contrast to the Peltier effect. Peltier effects means, when two different metals or semiconductors connect together and conduct electricity, one gives off cold, while the other gives off heat. In Seebeck effects, on the other hand, electricity is generated by adding different temperature to these disparate materials. We are developing Seebeck devices capable of generating 1 watts of electric power with 30 degrees C temperature differences.
