The use of energy has increased enormously in the last centuries as technology has developed and become central to our daily lives. Due to use of fossil fuel emissions a global warming is occurring which can affect ecosystems and cause imminent climate changes [1]. Strategies to avoid changes that could jeopardize existing societies have been designed, and one of them is to utilize waste heat and unconventional heat sources. A common issue with these sources is that they usually are of low temperatures compared to conventional heat sources (such as oil or biomass), and are therefore hard to utilize with conventional methods
