In the dawning age of sustainability, energy harvesting and (concomitant) dissipation at interfaces play a crucial role for processes that feed and fuel our modern societies. The most obvious dissipation channel is given by vibrations of the surface atoms (phonons), but also electron-hole pair excitations can play an important role. I am going to present some of our recent attempts to quantify the effects of both of these channels by further developing and applying computer simulations.
