Stirling engines generate electricity from heat
Hedy Parks wrote:Hello all. I have been (once again) looking for more detailed n updated info on the Stirling engine in Tamera, Portugal.
a few thoughts/questions I have:
-has anyone seen this with their own eyes and can attest that it actually works (and they don't have a battery bank providing the electricity that this SE is supposedly generating
-why don't they make the plans available, for sale or free? obviously they haven't been able to bring this to market and will probably never for economic reasons. But if the plans are available people could build their own and maybe even tinker with and improve the design.
-if all the off-grid people could use this instead of batteries I think the world would be a MUCH better place, from an ecological perspective (batteries are NASTY things)
-as I don't know these people in Tamera, I am starting to wonder if this whole thing is more about boosting egos than ecology?
