In this talk, we summarize the formalism we have developed to model heat transport in crystalline solids from first-principles density functional theory. We will illustrate the success of this approach by the results obtained for PbTe. In the second part, we will discuss the possibility of using 2D layered materials for converting heat to electricity in a solid-state thermionic device.
