It is a surprising fact that approximately 70% of the primary energy directly obtained from fossil fuels, etc. is lost or disposed of as "waste heat." As the issues of resources and energy become increasingly more serious, Japan has focused its attention on this vast unused energy resource and is putting its efforts into develop various forms of heat management technology, such as thermoelectric conversion technology, as well as heat storage, heat insulation and heat pump technologies, etc. For Japan, as a country which lacks natural resources, the current situation is that innovative technological development for unused heat energy is an area essential to the promotion of green innovation.
