CNC Research Project Generates Electricity From Wood Stove

Research project generates electricity from wood stove CNC power engineering and electronics instructors and students have completed a research project that uses new technology to produce electricity from the heat of a wood stove. The Thermoelectric Generators (TEG) research project showed electric current can be produced from any hot surface, and have a wide range of uses, including power recovery in cars and charging electronic devices in the backcountry.

CNC’s Applied Research and Innovation Department received a $20,000 grant from the

Omenica Beetle Action Coalition to determine the potential for converting heat from

woodstoves into electricity, with application in the green house industry.
