It's marginal but we have talked about the relative merits of using
electricity stored in rechargeable cells to power a fan used to
increase the combustion efficiency verses using a TEG to
simultaneously produce electricity to power the same fan. I think the
conclusion was that the PV plus battery had more utility and
robustness for the cost.

Producing all the ,say, 5kW necessary for cooking  would involve a
considerable cost in panels.
