Startup Location: Atlanta, GA

Emrgy provides clean energy generation capabilities to the owners / managers of man-made water transport canals constituting a multi-billion dollar opportunity in North America alone. The Company’s 5-10 kW modular hydropower turbines integrate flexibly within existing waterways to generate continuous renewable electric power using innovative hardware and software technology.

Emrgy’s distributed hydropower solution embodies the same attributes that have made the wind and solar power industries grow exponentially over the past several decades: modularity and flexibility. Building upon four years of development, over $2 million in Federally-sponsored R&D funding and growing customer engagements, Emrgy is preparing for expansion and significant sales with committed municipal and utility customers in 2019.
