Industrial waste heat recovery.

The unit pictured appears to be the steam engine with generator + the ancillaries it needs. No boiler though.

Looks rather nice, if a bit expensive.

An old bean can on the stove should do!

Stirling engine based domestic CHP units showed promise for a while but seem to have vanished.

They spent 30m developing a reciprocating steam engine??? Crumbs, I could probably do the same thing for 300! Well, maybe 3000...

I was looking at these on youtube the other day, they were using rhombic drive Stirling engines.

Of the two which looked like they might make it, one a had a Clucas wobble yoke and the other used a Beale free piston engine.
