The Pellet Stove Design Challenge is an international stove technology competition to spotlight innovative and high performing pellet stoves and prototypes. At the competition, there will also be a 3-day workshop with a series of roundtable discussions, presentations, lab and testing workshops and more.
This pellet stove challenge marks the third Stove Design Challenge, and the second to take place at Brookhaven. Previous challenges, including the inaugural Wood Stove Design Challenge on the National Mall in 2013, focused on promoting technological innovations that would help ensure wood stoves burn cleaner in the hands of consumers. All the Stove Design Challenges involve stakeholder engagement in testing and assessing stoves, the opportunity to see and understand how testing works, and workshops and roundtables that bring together industry, regulators, air quality groups, non-profits and the media.
Applications for innovative stove designs are now being accepted and 6-8 finalists ill be chosen by the Project Advisory Committee. We urge anyone considering entering a stove or stove prototype to fill out the letter of interest as soon as possible. The full application is due on January 8, 2016. Attendee registration has begun. Attendees will be able to visit the labs and see the testing and attend 3 days of presentations, workshops and round table discussions about pellet stove heating, culminating in an awards ceremony recognizing the winning stoves in the competition
Who should attend: researchers, scholars, scientists, students, policy makers, governmental and non-governmental agencies, manufacturers, tinkers, inventors, and interested consumers.
