This project aims to produce electricity with the help of roads, hot water and thermoelectric pipes which are renewable resources. This involves zero emission in all forms of pollution. The heat absorbed by the roads due to their black colour is put in use to heat the water which is passed underneath the road with the required conditions and structures. The hot water produced by this method is coll ected and brought to the generation plant through the same pipeline system and a thermoelectric tube is used to generate electricity from the hot water. Here the Seebeck effect is used to generate electricity from hot water. Instead of the conventional st eam turbine method here thermoelectric tubes are used which has high efficiency and low installation cost. The hot water is passed through the thermo electric tube and simultaneously cold water is passed above the tube which causes a change in temperature and loss of heat producing electricity. A generator with four thermoelectric tubes can generate a current of 10 W which can power a LED light, a fan, a portable TV etc
