Nowadays, a grill is widely used in the rural areas in Thailand. Therefore, this research studied the feasibility of attaching a Thermoelectric Generator Module (TEG) on a wall of the grill and investigated an optimum temperature for its installation. In this research, the hot side of the TEG was attached on the grill and the cold side had a ventilating fan by controlling the wind direction at the heat sink. The ventilating fan was installed at the suitable position at the side of the grill. The experiment showed that the temperatures of the cold and hot sides were measured at 53.2 °C and 150.9 °C, respectively. The difference of the highest and lowest temperatures was 97.7 °C, which generated power output and efficiency conversion at 2.05 W and 2.22% per module, respectively. An economic analysis indicated a payback period is 1.74 year. The power output from one TEG module can be supplied to an incandescent light bulb or charged a battery.
