Abstract Thermoelectric and solar-energy technologies are the focus of significant research, and can make a major contribution to the need to find alternative methods of power generation, heating and cooling. Thermoelectric technology is often overlooked, but can be used in applications where other technologies could not be used, or in combination with other alternative technologies. The thermoelectric devices can utilize solar thermal power and waste heat to generate electricity, and are friendly to the environment as no any refrigerant gas is used, so they have attracted increasing attention as a green and flexible source of electricity able to meet a wide range of power requirements. Contemporary problems surrounding climate change will act as a stimulus for the development of thermoelectric, and the technology is successful in cooling, refrigeration and space-craft power, with potential for growth in power generation applications. In this thesis, the potential of thermo electric cells as concentrator solar power generation system has been discussed in detail, and an abundant knowledge as well as information about the thermoelectric technology and solar thermal system has been also illustrated.
