Issue

Fossil fuel dependency

There is a strong dependency on fossil fuels.

Many new technologies are invented for creating sustainable energy. Often, these techniques depend on sun or wind, of which the supply fluctuates. Furthermore, it is still difficult to gain energy from slow-flowing water.

Solution

EQA-River

The EQA-River is a floating power station, which can locally provide energy from slow running surface water. It can be placed on the head of a groyne, between bridge pillars or on slow running rivers and streams. The EQA-River is an automatic system that can be linked to existing operating systems and performs real-time water measurements.
