In the Wood Stove Design Challenge, teams from around the world are competing to design an integrated thermoelectric generator and wood stove that is optimized for both home heat and electrical power output. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) and the Alliance for Green Heat (AGH) are excited to announce the first round of finalists for the fourth Wood Stove Design Challenge!

One of BETO’s goals is to develop innovative, sustainable technologies to convert our U.S. biomass resources into renewable biofuels, biopower, and bioproducts. BETO will provide a total of $125,000 in funding to support this technology that will help grow the bioeconomy.

AGH and BETO will announce additional finalists in the future. Finalists will have the opportunity to showcase their wood stove technology on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 9–14, 2018.

It’s not too late to apply for a grant and enter the competition. Registration is open until January 1!
