EEL Energy : A Unique Biomimicry Technology a revolutionary hydro-generator.
Inspired by 500 million years of nature’s R&D.
Nature as an inspiration to build a sustainable world
Our mission: accelerate the deployment of renewables energies around the globe with a breakthrough biomimetic undulating membrane.
Our patented technology for river and tidal applications is inspired by the efficient and sometimes spectacular undulation that propels the fastest fish on earth, reaching up to 110 km/h !
50% more efficient than conventional tidal devices
The EEL membrane, restrained by tension cables, undulates underwater under the effect of currents.
The entire surface of the membrane is in contact with the current and becomes an extremely powerful energy harvester for currents between 1.2 and 3.5 m/s. A patented electromechanical system converts the mechanical energy produced by the movements of the membrane into electrical energy, directly injectable into the main grid.
Hydro-Kinetic : Sustainable and Affordable Energy
The electricity produced by hydro-kinetic is 100% predictable and available 24 hours a day. This contrasts with the intermittent and unpredictable nature of solar or wind energy. They are efficient to replace electricity produced by expensive and polluting diesel generators.
You may be an isolated community or industry powered by diesel generators, or even possibly without access to electricity. And like 80% of the world’s population, located near a river or in coastal areas.
We may have a cost-efficient solution for you : standalone machine, river or tidal power farm in a mini grid or grid-connected configuration. Let’s talk !
