Profile
Based on groundbreaking nanotechnology research from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Alphabet Energy makes waste heat valuable with the incorporation of advanced thermoelectric materials to convert exhaust heat sources into electricity. Our patented applications of nanotechnology to silicon and tetrahedrite, called PowerBlocks, have enabled the creation of the world's first low-cost thermoelectric materials, which are assembled into modules to be configured for multiple waste-heat recovery applications. In the near term, Alphabet is changing the way people think about waste heat. Waste heat is untapped energy; a potential $90 billion market. Alphabet owns the complete value chain for thermoelectric generation: from the advanced materials to the assembly and configuration of modules to the successful generation of electricity from previously discarded waste heat.
