    Abstract

    We investigate the performance of a microfluidic energy conversion system using jetting flow. Preliminary results indicate that a voltage can be generated of several kilo-Volts and energy efficiencies can reach 15%. Such values are by far the highest obtained for electrokinetic conversion systems and open new perspectives for energy conversion.
