Global Thermoelectric manufactures TEGs that convert heat into electricity. Using a burner you can generate continuous DC electricity with no moving parts. Generators range in output size from 15 to 550 Watts.

"3) They generally produce very little average output power, usually in the range of 10µW to 10mW." So, what's the point in this energy harvesting?? William - http://www.carid.com/

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
