1. A generator for an internal combustion engine comprising:
a cooling jacket in which a coolant flows;
a heat protector configured to cover an exhaust manifold in which exhaust gas flows to absorb heat energy emitted from the exhaust manifold;
a thermoelectric module configured to be disposed between the heat protector and the cooling jacket to generate electric energy;
a first heat spreader disposed between the thermoelectric module and the heat protector, and configured to uniformly disperse the heat energy; and
a second heat spreader disposed between the cooling jacket and the thermoelectric module, and configured to uniformly disperse the heat energy.
