AbstractOne of the major social problems for the 21st century is going to be making available a sustainable supply of energy to the world’s population since world demand increases while fossil fuel supplies decrease. Thermoelectric energy converters are solid-state devices are able to convert waste heat into electricity, with no moving components, they are silent, totally scalable and extremely reliable. For all that reasons, they are expected to play an increasingly important role in meeting the energy challenge of the future. Some of the most important advances in enhancing the efficiency of these materials are found in their nanostructuration. In this talk, a review of the state of the art in thermoelectric nanomaterials will be presented.
