THE CONCEPT

Communities adjacent to rivers can produce power for economic development using micro-hydro turbines, solar, wind and battery storage. Click the button for  a deep dive prepared by our partner Smart Hydro.

 

COLLABORATION

  • We work with the chttc.ca the Canadian Hydrokinetic Turbine Test Center, part of the University of Manitoba in Canada.

  • We are currently developing a portable microgrid solution for remote off-grid communities.

THE FUTURE

The SHARKS Are Circling Around Renewable Energy

For all the nice (and not-so-nice) things people say about hydropower, the chances of building a new fleet of hydropower dams in the US are slim to none. However, there is still plenty of untapped renewable energy to be scoured from running water — and the US Department of Energy is determined to pry it loose with $38 million for a newly announced research program. The new announcement lends additional support to the prospects for deploying renewables as an economic recovery strategy in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.

 

THE OPPORTUNITY

We want to collaborate with solar developers to grow our solution.

Using a micro-grid we can also aggregate biomass and other renewable energy devices.
