iGen has developed the world’s first self-powered hybrid space and water heating appliance. This project will focus on the next generation furnace that will deliver a better, more efficient and smarter home comfort appliance. In addition to heating the house, the i2 appliance can generate enough power to run itself and blackstart from a battery. The next gen furnace design will incorporate a new controller, steam turbine, more power generation, better reliability and easier serviceability. The appliance will be smarter with an integrated data logging solution. The team will build out a manufacturing plan to increase scale and cost reduction.
