Research on renewable energy resources evolves as its technological diversification ensures energy liability at feasible economy. Immense demand in transportation sectors with regards to continuing growth in passenger and freight activity exhibits automotive industry plays a vital role in global warming via greenhouse gas emissions. In order to curb efforts mitigating greenhouse gases (GhG) emission via transportation, wasted heat from vehicle engine has been used as fuel. Exothermic reaction used to initiate temperature difference aids thermoelectric cooler (TEC) to convert them into electrical energy. In this study, TEC has been exercised to harvest heat exerted from chemical reaction. Influence of waste heat harvest on velocity and energy efficiency of designed lab scale thermoelectric cooler car (TECar) has been weighed along.
