As some of you are aware, our Thermal Electric Generator – Pizza Oven Waste Energy Recovery (a.k.a. TEG POWER) research project with Pizza Pizza, Thermal Electronic Corporation and Acrolab was profiled as one of eight hand-picked projects to be featured in the Ontario Centre of Excellence’s 2014 annual report this year and was showcased at the OCE AGM […]
After 2 years of research involving McMaster University, Thermal Electronics Corp (Head Industrial Partner), NSERC, OCE, PIZZA PIZZA Royalty Corp., and Acrolabs. The team and industrial partners have successfully completed the first phase of harvesting electricity from waste heat from a pizza oven. The (first of 3 stages per oven) is producing over 100 watts. By project finally it […]

It’s the middle of winter.
You’ve just skied into your remote cabin, back in the wilderness, far away from ‘civilization’.
CNC researcher Oro Barton, right, explains how a wood stove can be used to power lights using a thermoelectric generator (Model # TEG12VDC-24liquid) from TECTEG Mrg. A Division of Thermal Electronics Corp.
In our last blog we discussed the issues and benefits of using air to cool the cold side (heat removal side) of the TEG Generator System. In this Chapter we will discuss the characteristics around using air and liquid and why liquid cooling is far superior to air cooling with minimal draw backs.
The basic differences between Liquid and air […]
Thermoelectric power generation is a growing and exciting green technology that has in the past 5 years become increasing researched and implemented as a practical complimenting technology for generating additional power in off grid applications as well as remote locations. The basic concept of the technology is to use waste heat or generated heat and scavenge a portion of […]
