Pakistan is suffering from energy crisis, specifically of Electrical Power. There is a need of Electricity Generation from Renewable Energy Sources and less consumption from main electricity supply. Soltherm Gencon team designed a solution for this need; which is composed of two parts. First part is of efficient power generation from solar panels using sunlight and from thermoelectric modules (TEG modules) using the waste heat in houses and industry. Some waste heat sources are from geyser, exhaust pipes, chimneys etc. Second part is of intelligent controlling of power utilization by the load. This will be accomplished by an embedded system such that least power is utilized from WAPDA supply in conjunction with renewable energy sources.
