- Neno materials play an important role in improving heat transfer rate and converting the available energy into optimum output. Condenser in a thermal power plant is the major cause of heat waste during phase change. During this phase change in condenser the efficiency of whole power plant can be optimized by utilizing waste heat available and at the same time the environmental pollution due to thermal energy can be reduced with prime objective to attain clean and efficient power generation. In the present paper, we convert some of the condenser wasted energy into electricity using thermoelectric material. By selecting suitable thermoelectric material and after required calculations we can design thermoelectric generator to be used as the condenser of 210 MW unit of kota thermal power plant. It is seen that about 3.3 % efficiency of the said power plant during phase change is expected to be optimized by using the designed thermoelectric generator
