Now it is Beach Time!

The weather in northern Germany has been perfect this year – we are enjoying the beach. With our new office so close, walking to work is a pleasure.

Harvesting energy in any form helps to increase efficiency. Heat itself can be a source of electrical generation. A thermoelectric generator based on half-Heusler material, a class of thermoelectric material discovered by scientists about 15 years ago, is ready for the market.
More details are in the Green Power of the Month section of the current issue.

We are starting to get ready for all the exciting conferences and exhibitions during autumn. Just to highlight a few from around the world with strong power relationships: first in September are EPE ECCE 2018 in Riga, Latvia and ECCE 2018 in Portland OR, USA; then LED Professional in Bregenz, Austria, ESREF in Aalborg, Denmark and Power Electronics in Moscow, Russia. My publication has partnered with all of these events to provide crucial information on new devices and designs, first hand.

Mark your calendar for the Wide Band Gap Conference in Munich on December 4th.
Building on last year’s success, the program this year will continue and be strengthened in cooperation with ICC Media / AspenCore. See

Bodo’s magazine is delivered by postal service to all places in the world. It is the only magazine that spreads technical information on power electronics globally. We have EETech as a partner to serve North America more efficiently. If you are using any kind of tablet or smart phone, you will find all of our content on the website If you speak the language, or just want to have a look, don’t miss our Chinese version:

My Green Power Tip for August:
Sit down in a typical German Baltic Beach Chair and make your phone calls fully relaxed. That is the new approach to a paperless office.
