OUR NORTHYDRO STRATEGY
- Stage 1 To capture energy from Run-of-River, Rapids and Waterfalls with the HUG
- Stage 2 To introduce a smaller version of the HUG: for Fish and Hunting Camps
- Stage 3 HUG Hydro electricity and irrigation in remote areas: to support work in South America and Africa.
- Stage 4 To Introduce the HUG Water Transfer System to crisis area
- Stage 5 To introduce commercially viable HUG Tidal Energy
River hydrokinetic energy has great potential, but it is still very much in the developmental stage.
The usual ‘Run-of-River’ hydroelectric facilities could be improved by more than 300% by using the HUG system, because it maximizes the kinetic energy. One must harness the natural serpentine flow instead of the straight pipes leading to the bottom of a Run-of-River turbine.
- Redirecting water flow to ‘Run-of-River’, funnels into an innovative HUG, which requires no dam and uses the Power of the Vortex.
- Presently no patents exist, which are commercially viable, to capture energy from rapids or rivers without a dam.
- Canada has tremendous potential for small hydro development with more than 5500 identified sites (11,000 MW), which require no dams or barrages.
- The global technical potential of small hydro power is estimated between 150,000 and 200,000 MW.
