Delivering hydrokinetic power plants

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2014

Location: Hessen, Germany









Our goal is the serial production of modular hydrokinetic power plants. By harvesting the free flowing energy of rivers, a clean and stable energy source can be provided.

The e.Ray expedites the electrification in developing countries and is a valuable extension for the energy system in industrialized countries.

No dam is needed. The converter unit can be directly attached at the shore. By connecting several converter units, it is possible to increase the power output.

The platform over the water surface can be used by people practising a nature based lifestyle, where they can leave their boat, use it as recreational area, do fish-farming or use it as a habitat for flora and fauna. Our system is designed to deliver a solution easy to install and maintain.
