Emrgy is redefining hydropower to be characterized by the same the attributes that catalyzed the exponential growth of the wind and solar power industries in recent decades: modularity and flexibility. Using innovative hardware and software technology, Emrgy delivers low-cost renewable power generation within water infrastructure, such as irrigation canals — directly addressing the energy/water nexus, balancing intermittent renewables in a distributed grid environment, and abating carbon emissions globally.
Emrgy’s automobile-sized hydropower turbines are simply placed into existing water infrastructure with no civil construction or dam needed. Based on the water depth and velocity, each turbine generates 10-40 kilowatts and up to 250 megawatt-hours per year, or the equivalence of 250-500 solar panels, and are placed in series along waterways to form arrays of generators just like solar or wind technologies.
Emrgy’s distributed hydropower arrays produce electricity between USD $0.02-0.06/kWh, representing attractive ROI for: (1) agricultural producers seeking to offset high grid rates or diesel; (2) water districts seeking a new revenue stream due to declining on-farm water usage; (3) renewable energy project investors seeking market-rate returns and higher capacity factors than intermittent alternatives.
