Whispergen

I did a search and didn't find any past discussion about this. It is a diesel fueled system that generates heat and power. Designed for sailboats, the application to RV's seems possible. This system is used to provide power and heat to an experimental pre-fabricated home that I came across. There is a larger version that is about diswasher size specifically intended for home use. I find it quite fascinating and thought I'd throw it out there for people to see. Also, I'm not sureif this is the right place to post this so the moderators can fel free to move it elsewhere

I've been in contact with them.. 2 years ago or so... it's a great concept, as far as I know not perfect for a trailer.
It is actually an italian invention from 30 years ago by some engineer of the Italian State power comp. ... swept under the carpet for obvious reasons, like so many inventions that make you consume less or buy less.

If interested, this is the home I'm referring to:

sustain | design | studio | miniHome

It was profiled on "The Nature of Things", in an episode called "Build Green".
