The energy efficient technology in the automobile is the need of hour due to energy crisis as well as environmental problems. This paper deals and describes the feasibility of utilizing the dissipated waste heat energy from the exhaust manifold of an automobile engine .It involves the vibration of nano level thin carbon material. The waste heat energy is utilized to obtain thermo elastic vibration of required frequency. By using the piezoelectric principle, generated vibrations can be converted into Electromotive Force (EMF). This paper briefs about the various carbon based material for this application and performance comparison.
