We examine the influence of the superconducting proximity effect on the thermoelectric response of hybrid mesoscopic normal metal – superconductor nanostructures. We demonstrate that Andreev scattering can break the well-known Mott relation between the thermopower and the logarithmic energy derivative of the conductance. We also consider the effect of superconductivity on the temperature dependence of the thermopower.
