Thermoelectric Generators (TEGs)

THERMOELECTRIC POWER GENERATORS (TEGs) Overview

Tried, Tested and True - Power where you need it.®

Gentherm Global Power Technologies (GPT) is best known for its experience with thermoelectric power generators also refered to as 'TEGs'. In fact, this technology set the foundation for our business over 40 years ago. GPT has TEGs in over 55 countries around the world.

GPT is the world's largest manufacturer of TEGs. Its systems are incredibly tough, due in part to the fact they have no moving parts. This makes them ideal for long-term unattended operation providing power for remote locations that may be exposed to harsh conditions or where site visits are difficult.

How does it work?

A thermoelectric generator has no moving parts but is designed to convert heat directly into electricity. As heat moves from a gas burner through a thermoelectric module, it causes an electrical current to flow. For more information on how TEGs work and their advantages Click Here 

GPT's individual generators range in output size from 15 to 550 Watts, and are ideal for remote power applications requiring power up to 5,000 Watts. For more information on how to size a TEG for your application Click Here.
