FireBee Power Tower turns “waste” heat into electricity

Sep 13, 2017, 6:00 AM EDT

Seattle-based HydroBee has launched a 5W thermoelectric generator that uses heat, which would usually dissipate from chimney or cooking stove, turning it into clean electricity for charging small electronic devices off-grid or at home.

Called FireBee Power Tower, the generator features radiator fins that soak up dissipated heat, eventually yielding 7 watts of electricity dispatched via two outlets, writes Tree Hugger.

HydroBee, which is vying from a National Geographic Chasing Genius award, claims that such a simple and efficient method of producing one’s own electricity could be a game-changer for those without reliable power source in developing countries, notes
