This Wood Stove Makes Electricity To Power A Small Home…

This wood-burning stove makes electricity, is portable, low-powered and can output 500 Watts DC. It can supply enough power to run a small house and be used to cook with. This stove is already in use in many parts of the 3rd world to help relieve suffering, improve health, and reduce harm to the environment through renewable energy technology.

It is called the InStove. There are two models to choose from. They have a FireVolt Hydronic Thermoelectric Core that is a solid state energy system rated at 250 Watts and 500 Watts. It uses wood or pellets (or other types of biomass). The generator runs silently. The exhaust is almost smoke-free. The pump uses less than 14 Watts. The most costly part of the stove has a 200,000-hour service life…

Overview of the InStove…



Factory Tour…

Here’s another great idea too. If you’re a DIY kind of person, you can actually purchase a kit to convert a standard 36 or 55 gallon steel drum into a pretty stylish functional wood stove

We heat our home with wood entirely

How much does it cost in the US?

Where can you buy this stove in the US an how much does it cost!!

I think the key word was makes electricity not just heats a home

Reply

This stove does not produce electricity. An ad-on called the FireVolt was never funded or available.

I wish we had a wood stove, all electric heat in a older home , it sucks. There talking about banning wood burning stoves here

Reply

now you’re talking

Who makes this stove, where can one be bought?

Trace F Peterson….surely we can figure this out!

this is not an ecosnippet this is encouraging pollution.

    Wood is carbon-neutral – what it gives up in CO2 in burning is taken in by the living plants. It is a renewable resource too.

    Remember Londonsmog anyone ?

    Leanne Ridley smoke is bad for breathing, there are lots more particles gasses chemicals and metals released into the air from burning wood than CO2

    This is NOTHING compared to the benzeze and other pyrolitic compounds of fossil fuel combustion.

    Reply

    Possibly could be used for biomass as well?

    Reply

    Yes, it can be used for biomass it turns out. Also, already has particulate reduction in place. Read the article.

    Shaun Smith Oh horrors, how DID the world ever survive forest fires? Sheesh.

    Zach Yocum Nice to see someone else who puts brains into gear before putting “mouth” into motion 😉

    Over half the worlds forests 75%? have been clear cut and burned, they used to be absorbing lower levels of carbon from the air, now the air is flooded artificially from the ocean of oil, mountains of coals and caverns of carbon gas that have been burned into the air destroying lots of oxygen and creating a witches brew of pollutants. The industrial revolution is a planetary health disaster.

    we dont need to be burning trees we need to be using them to capture carbon and pollutants not burning them…..

    Reply

It is a practical idea but we are trying to eliminate fossil fuels and cutting of trees.

    This is exactly the type of thing that will move us away from fossil fuels. Wood is not a fossil fuel. This stove can also be used for biomass fuel, and uses particulate reduction technology. Cleanest energy sources. Look at the entire process of energy production. Nothing else uses so little total cumulative resource input.

    Reply

Read the article. Not Encouraging pollution at all. Again, wood is carbon neutral. The stove can also be used for biomass, as per the article. Extremely low particulate output, as per the article. Technology is easily in place to lower particulate emissions from wood stoves. Wood is the greenest energy source by far, with the possible exception of hemp biomass.

Reply

Producing heat from wood, especially with particulate reduction, is exceedingly green. When you can also produce electricity from it? This is fantastic!

Anyone knows if I can buy it in spain?or the company only sell it in USA?

Reply

    why would this be better then solar? no need to fuel it

wood it the worst polluting, least efficient form of energy

how exactly is the exhaust smoke free? that seems like a pretty outrageous claim?

Rock on!! I want one!

An microwave needs a separate 1500 watt circuit , so I guess you cook lunch on the wood stove?

Reply

Somebody show it to Arelene.

If you want to pay $8000 to buy the 500W prototype, that is. On top of the $800 for the stove itself (the prototype is a drop in module). The stove itself looks a good option, although its thermal efficiency is quite modest (they quote 50% in use – most modern standard woodstoves will be 70% plus), but then that’s a function of building a portable unit with a small throughput and a short flue stack on it.

yeah looked into this and a couple of other types, always big money, and the better ones are even bigger money. Cheap off grid energy at the highest price you can charge.

Reply

Solar is renewable and better.

Reply

    It’s less flexible and by the time you’ve added your battery storage impacts and costs? The lifecycle assessment won’t be dissimilar.

    Reply

    In Alaska you need a multiple prong approach. Solar & wind and this may be another piece of the puzzle. It’s not so easy up here to be off grid & green at the same time but it is what it is. I am going to look into this.

Gee, no CO2 footprint here.

500Watts get a grip

Reply

expensive for people poor enough to need one.

I live without car. in a house in the city. How to get continuously enough wood?
and where “wood” I store it?
and where can I buy this miracle afordable, even in Europe?

Reply

At 500 watts that doesn’t even have enough amps to power my studio with just me in it. Most microwaves are 1000 watts and lowest I have is 700. I have a 2000 watt dual fuel generator and it’s not enough. Your A/C has literally zero hope to run. Maybe a refrigerator will run if it pulls under 4.2 amps. 600 watts is like 5 amps. Great idea for people without power at all and access to wood. Not so much people wanting to power their house.

Reply

HA ! 500 watts !!! ??? this computer alone is 350 watts ! a whole house,…. hum,.. do you think you can run a furnace ? !!! ha !

Reply

Claims of this kind are just not serious. Why not just sell it for what it can do and stop the BS!

Reply

Wish I had this back in the day…………

Reply

Yes but does the small home make enough wood to create trees?

Reply

One ‘wood’ need to live next to a forest! okay for a weekend hut maybe.

Reply

And they don’t want us to burn wood.

Reply

holy crow are you all ever negitive ..i think it is a good idea …i cant afford it though as just a cook stove ..but maybe they can get the price down a bit if they develop it further ….if this was a stove that could heat a 400 sq ft home i would buy it

Reply

Arent we supposed to be growing trees and not burning them?
