Emrgy delivers affordable hydropower in areas not currently considered for energy purposes.
Emrgy is a transformational technology company that enables customers to generate electricity from slow or shallow water flows to offset energy consumption or achieve grid power independence.
Together with the US Department of Energy and US Office of Naval Research, we developed a compact, portable hydropower turbine based on a proprietary magnetic gear that overcomes the compromises of conventional turbines plagued by the risks and limitations of mechanical gears, representing a breakthrough in kinetic power conversion. It has been selected as one of the Top 30 Emerging Technologies by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Emrgy’s SUV-sized turbines convert energy in moving water to 10KW of renewable electric power. The devices integrate directly within continuously flowing waterways to harvest energy around the clock – each device potentially amassing over 200kWh in a single day. Compared to wind and solar alternatives, Emrgy produces 2-3X the energy for the same rated power capacity.
Each $40,000 device produces the energy equivalence of 7 average US homes, 42 in Germany, or 86 in India.
