Wood Stove Design Challenge!
The Next Generation Wood Stove Design Challenge is now underway! The Challenge seeks to promote next generation stove designs, build a community of innovators and showcase stove innovation to the public.
The Design Challenge will culminate in a Wood Stove Decathlon, modeled after the Solar Decathlon, which will take place on the National Mall in November 15-19, 2013. The Challenge grew from discussions between the Alliance for Green Heat and editors at Popular Mechanics magazine who believe innovation can overcome some of the problems inherent in the wood stove and that a "smart" wood stove may be on the horizon.
The Challenge is organized by the Alliance for Green Heat with a number partner institutions including Popular Mechanics, the Washington State Department of Ecology, the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, the United States Forest Service, the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (HPBA) and the Masonry Heater Association of North America (MHA). Supporting institutions include the Arbolito Foundation, the Osprey Foundation, the Biomass Thermal Energy Council, the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and Sunstein, Kann, Murphy & Timbers, an IP law firm.
