Smart Hydro Power Turbine
Smart Hydro Power Turbine
A turbine designed as a horizontal axis “in-stream” turbine for generating power from the kinetic energy of flowing water. This product was developed to be low cost while minimizing negative environmental impacts. Additionally, it is highly adaptable to different stream conditions and use cases both on the grid and off.
Smart Hydro Power has projects in all continents and has prioritized the productive use of sustainable decentralized electrification solutions. ^Interview ^with ^representative Specific countries include: India, Nigeria, Peru, Pakistan, U.S., Canada, Indonesia, Germany, Brazil, Colombia, China, Austria, and Switzerland
Smart Hydro Power is a German company with an international team that designs, fabricates and installs decentralized generation solutions. These renewable energy systems can be enhanced with hydro-kinetic turbines built up in modules. These river turbines can be integrated together with photovoltaics into a complete hybrid system for decentralized electrification. In order to guarantee the most efficient use of energy, these proprietary plants run through an electrical management system with a unique load management and monitoring. ^Interview ^with ^representative
Prices vary from $2,500 to $3,900 USD per kW of power depending on the size of the system installed.
