Graphene, owing to its unique electronic properties, has become one of the active areas of condensed matter research with promising applications in future efficient thermoelectric (TE) and energy storage devices. The present work reviews the status of thermoelectric power (TEP) of graphene systems, including single-layer, bilayer, and nanoribbons. The theory of TEP, based on the Boltzmann transport formalism in 2D systems, is given. An analysis of the experimental data, in terms of the diffusion and the phonon-drag contributions to TEP, with regard to the various scattering mechanisms operative in graphene systems, is presented. The outlook on TEP for better understanding of the TE properties of graphene is discussed.
