Early Stage Startup





Tagline

Smart Hydro Power enlightening the future of rural communities



Elevator Pitch

Smart Hydro Power (SHP) designs and produces small hydropower plants that work through kinetic energy. The SMART Turbines use the flow of rivers and canals without the need for dams or modifications to the natural river course, thereby resulting in competitive installation costs and low environmental impact. Throughout the last four years we have gathered valuable experience in rural electrification. Although qualifying as “green” the products are positioned as cost-efficient alternative for decentralized electrification along rivers. Besides that, the SMART Turbines were proved as successful solutions in other applications as well, such as complement source of energy for regions close to small hydro power plants and in hybrid systems with solar panels.
Market volume in emerging countries like Brazil, Colombia, Peru or Indonesia is estimated at over $1 billion per year. More developed markets like Canada or Germany add a much smaller, but less price sensitive market niche. The markets are primarily addressed via local partners with the ability to sell large volumes towards government agencies or utilities serving electrification projects. The most recent deal closed was for sixteen turbines to be installed in Nigeria, what reassure the efficiency of the business model applied. As assembling can be done locally non-product related costs like transportation or taxes can be reduced and the product can be introduced as “German technology produced at home”. This supports acceptance.

Product

Smart Hydro Power renewable energy technology has its main focus on easiness, completeness and competitiveness.

While hydropower is nothing new, our proprietary system is innovative in at least three aspects: (1) The 5 kW permanent magnet, synchronous, three phase AC generator is the only water resistant unit in its class and allows higher efficiencies than comparable systems, (2) the floating body integrates a diffuser optimizing water pressure upon the rotor and thereby producing maximum power output, (3) the Smart Hydro Power Energy Management System combines a rectifier, battery charger and converter in one system and allows not only the choice between different electrical circuits (primary and secondary) but as well the choice between 110 V or 220 V and DC supply.


Why we are ecofriendly

SMART turbines use the flow of rivers and canals without the need for dams or modifications to the natural river course, thereby resulting in competitive installation costs and low environmental impact.

Latest News

Smart Hydro Power recently signed a deal for thirteen additional kinetic water turbines in Nigeria, after the successful installation of two turbines at the end of 2013.
