The Stirling Engine
was invented in 1816 by the

Its practical use is limited to
low powerhome use.
The Stirling engine is significant for its high efficiency compared to steam engines. Stirling engines are able to achieve 40% efficiency, are quiet, and can use any heat source. These days, Stirling Engines are still being used as a source of energy and are an increasingly important part of the possibility of using alternative and renewable energy sources, particularly in the case of motors for micro-generation.
