In recent years, global warming and restrictions on the use of energy sources have increased the environmental problems of emissions. In the sector too, most costs are due to energy (electrical and thermal), labor and materials. But among these, energy would be related to the ability to manage costs or possible cost savings, and therefore energy management will help reduce costs. The possibilities of the contribution of thermoelectric systems to "green" technologies, especially for the recovery of waste heat from the industry that exhausts combustion gases. The result is extensive research into green technologies that produce electricity. If techniques for recovering waste heat, such as the thermoelectric generator (TEG), is being developed. Its implementation in the automotive industry is carried out in many ways. Previous research shows that TEG is useful as a method for collecting waste heat. Because of the different advantages of thermoelectric generators, they have become a promising alternative to green technology. The thermoelectric generator converts the remaining energy directly into electrical energy, where it is not necessary to take into account the costs of the thermal energy input. The application of this technology can also improve the overall efficiency of energy conversion systems. Although the TEG outputs are low with the available techniques, feasible electricity can be generated as a result of waste heat emitted by the machine (operation of the internal combustion engine). The applications of this green technology in the direct conversion of waste-heat energy into electrical energy. This paper presents a background on the basic concepts of thermoelectric power generation and the recent patents on thermoelectric power generation with its important and relevant applications for waste heat thermal energy are review and discussed.
