Waste not, want not:"Waste not, want not: make use of lost engine heat"
Since turbo's are becoming more popular in today's vehicles, why not use the exhaust that is being diverted to the "waste-gate" of the
turbo to spin a generator that generates electricity for Hybrids to charge the batteries? Much like on the same principal that hydro dams use water to generate electricity.
Use of turbo heat to generate electricity via theromocouples that converts the wasted exhaust heat into electricity can also be a source of recharing Hybrid vehicles batteries.
