Please have a look to: http://www.micropelt.com/down/thermo_generator_package.pdf , describes both output power of generator components and combined with a practical heat sink. Micropelt.

It depends on how large (how many peltier cells are connected) as each just generate 250uV and current is limited due to form factor. I've seen some people are using one of Micropelt product for a temperature gradient of 2C but it is in 0.1mW range.

thank you @wlad01...10mW is very impressive, I am used to microwatts levels with any harvesting device...how much temperature gradient do you need to get 10mW?

The output power ranges from about 100 uW to 10 mW, depending on the available temperaute gradient and can power wireless sensors and actuators. Micropelt.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
