This device uses heat from the sun, engine, and electrical cords to heat water to steam, which spins turbines to produce electricity. The sun hits a black panel on the hood and reflects heat back up, creating a greenhouse effect. The engine heat rises through the panel and heats the water. Lastly, the electricity just created will flow through wires imbedded in the panel on its way to the batteries. The Steam created will flow through a tube to a set of turbines to create electricity. This device will save energy from being lost as heat from the engine of the car. The electricity that results can be used to power an electric motor or sold back to the power company once you arrive at home.
