Supplying Decentralised Hydro power to the People, for the Planet.
Generating more hydrokinetic power with less water flow than any global competitor
We are the inventors of the patented Micro Hydropower Kit that supplies complementary clean power to communities with access to constant water flow. Our Vision is to provide communities across the globe with the technology to generate predictable clean energy in decentralised locations without the need for heavy machinery and expensive infrastructure. The world is transitioning to a low carbon economy and cleantech renewable energy technologies are starting to dominate the global energy market. Micro Hydro generators provide a constant base load power generation using untapped kinetic energy flows
Kinetic NRG have developed a patented novel design that positively contributes to cleantech power generation.
Run-of-River (ROR) also known as run-of-the-river is where little or no water is stored or dammed. Subject to constant water flow, installing our micro hydropower kit for energy production is considered an environmentally friendly, complimentary power source to solar or wind power.
Kinetic NRG are well positioned to deliver an environmentally friendly Hydropower solution that is well suited to work with DRE systems due to its small weight and size, transportability and high power output in comparison to competing systems
While hydropower accounts for over 70% of global electricity production from renewable energy sources, the sector is currently underrepresented in the portfolios of institutional investors
Hydropower counts as key technology of the decarbonized energy sector, because of its highly predictable base-load generation, high stability, flexibility, and as most efficient large-scale mode to store energy
Hydropower stations constructed decades ago across Asia are in need of significant investment and upgrades to enhance their critical contribution to the region’s clean energy goals
Distributed Renewable Energy (DRE) is the most promising model to bring sustainable energy to All
The Patented Kinetic NRG Micro Hydropower Kit (MHK) uses an environmentally friendly rotor to produce more power from low velocity water flow (1.5 m/s) within irrigation channel and run-of-river placement. The MHK’s modular design, transportable structure, Integrated Power Module (IPM) and AC electricity balancing via a smart technology power management system makes this system grid ready.
Due to the low CAPEX and OPEX the MHK is well positioned to exceed the USA Department of Energy targets of Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE) – which is $/kW over lifetime of asset.
Kinetic NRG are paving the way for predictable, environmentally friendly, turnkey, Decentralised Renewable Energy (DRE), Hydropower systems
Designed with an Integrated Power Module and smart technology power management system make this system grid ready, ideal in remote and private locations.
Socially & Environmentally Responsible
Rotor design means there is no chopping action to cause harm to fish. No damming required with Run-Of-River or Irrigation Channel installation. Local Assembly means jobs creation potential in remote communities.
