Event Description

Join the Alliance for Green Heat and the Biomass Thermal Energy Council
FREE webinar this Thursday at 10:00 AM:
Thermoelectric Power Generation

The first speaker's, Adam Lorimer, talk is titled, Thermoelectric Heat Recovery - Lessons Learned from Eight Years Developing Oil and Gas and Automotive Applications. Adam will describe the landscape of thermoelectric heat recovery, including what has been achieved by Alphabet Energy and factors impacting applications and market selection. He will then explain a few important technical considerations for developing thermoelectric systems considering materials, thermal resistance matching and power conditioning.

The second speaker's, Professor Jeff Snyder, talk is titled, Thermal and Electrical Design Considerations for a Thermoelectric Generator.

This is the third in a planned webinar series that will focus on various technical and policy issues related to the automation of wood and pellet stoves with sensors and WiFi enabled controls, and the development of thermoelectric wood stoves to power lights, cell phones, and automated controls.
