Hydro energy has always had collateral damage – hydro dams cause irreparable changes to ecology and require massive investment, and almost all existing tidal and current solutions risk fish mortality and have output limitations. The real question is how do we extract energy in an unobtrusive, simple and effective way from flowing water?
THERE IS FAR MORE POWER AVAILABLE FROM WATER THAN AIR, AND THIS MORPHING WING HAS THE ABILITY TO CREATE LIFT FROM VERY SLOW MOVING CURRENTS.
A turbine solution with slow-moving blades, that have very little risk of fish mortality
Massive power output potential
Allows large-scale energy production in rivers and ocean currents
Simple and robust design, using proven technologies and materials
The power of water is in its density. Flowing water is almost 1000 times denser than flowing air, and when we combine that with our morphing foil technology, we create a far more efficient way of extracting meaningful power from a flow. Like a fish in water, our solution can harness energy while avoiding drag. Hydro power that can be placed in any flowing body of water provide meaningful outputs – rivers, tidal flows, ocean currents and more. The vision is to be able to create far more power from our oceans and rivers than was ever thought possible, with zero environmental impact.
