Thermoelectric Generators

Gentherm is the world's leading manufacturer of Thermoelectric Generators (TEGs). TEG's are designed to run on either propane or natural gas and range in output size from 15 to 550 watts (can be combined to 5kW).


How It Works?

Thermoelectric Generators provide continuous DC power by converting heat directly into electricity.  As heat moves from a gas burner through a thermoelectric module, it causes an electrical current to flow.  A hermetically sealed thermoelectric module, called a thermopile contains an array of semiconductor elements.  When heat from a burner is applied to one side of the thermopile and the other side is kept cool via cooling fins, the temperature difference across the thermopile creates steady DC electricity with no moving parts.  The technology dates back to the 1960s and has been deployed around the world and in space.
