In a statement, NEA said Soleco’s picohydro system, which started operating in Aug. 12, utilizes tail water from the Hanabian Minihydro Power Plant and generates power of up to 600 watts with maximum water flow velocity of 4.6 meter per second.
Now that COP21 has concluded, and the Paris climate agreement has been adopted by more than 190 countries, it is very likely we will see the demand for renewables increase even more than it has in recent years.
Many companies and industries could be missing out on a very, valuable resource despite their efforts to lower their environmental footprints, go green, cut costs and tap into the benefits afforded through renewable energy. Did you know, facilities with closed-loop water systems actually have a source of hydrokinetic power right there? It's true. Power plants, steel mills, waste water treatment facilities, cement plant, food processing plants and other factories with closed-loop water systems can cut costs by capturing energy from falling water.
When disaster hits, those in the affected areas generally have an immediate need for relief. Depending on the type and severity of the disaster, it is quite common to find people in need of access to clean water, food, lighting, clothes, shelter, energy and other emergency services. Unless these people get the resources they require, their lives will be in further danger.
While hydropower is considered to be a source of renewable energy by the federal government, the construction of large hydropower dams has generated a lot of negative press and general opposition in recent months. This doesn't mean all hydro-electric power should be discounted. When it comes to hydroelectric, people need to remember...bigger isn't always better. Small-hydro can harness the untapped potential of this renewable in the United States and around the world with far less risk.
The potential of hydrokinetic power has been generating a lot attention in recent years, as the world continues to search for more reliable renewable energy options. While solar and wind are extremely beneficial, and definitely key to the future of renewables, these sources of power are not always as consistent as we may like. In addition, hydropower cannot be overlooked as a source of renewable energy. We're not talking about large hydroelectric plants here, we're talking about microhydro plants and the innovative approach HeliosAltas has taken in developing the first movable hydropower technology.
Roseville, CA – May 17, 2016 -- HeliosAltas Corporation and DA Green Power Consulting (DAGPC) have agreed to an exclusive distribution and development partnership agreement for the territory of the Republic of the Philippines. The Philippines is an ideal market for the Helios PowerWheel™ Technology. The mountainous archipelago island nation provides numerous opportunities for this hydroelectric technology. Archimedes Flores, CEO of DAGPC, said “This unique renewable technology can provide consistent baseload power at a significant cost savings to our customers. We already have a backlog of installations for the first year with more projects in discussion.”
Despite many parts of the country and world experiencing various levels of drought, hydroelectric can still be a source of renewable power from which countless communities can tap into using existing infrastructures. In fact, our company has engineered a way to tap into the benefits of small hydro with very little environmental impact. Through the use of our patented PowerBall and PowerWheel systems, and infrastructures already in place, but not in use, zero emissions energy can begin being generated at low costs and without the need for lengthy construction projects, harmful dams being built or significant water waste.
