EcoCinetic develops and markets innovative water turbines using the hydrokinetic energy of waterways to produce electricity for isolated off-grid communities. More than 1.1 billion people do not have access to electricity nowadays, while most of them live close to a river offering free, natural and permanent hydrokinetic energy. Off-grid villages commonly use diesel generators, an expensive and polluting way. Hydrokinetic water turbines offer much cheaper electricity with a minimal impact to the natural environment. A hydrokinetic water turbine produces enough to satisfy the needs of several households for lighting, recharging mobile phones, computers, domestic appliances and electrical tools.
