A look back at 2019...

The past year was full of exciting developments for Emrgy. In July, Emrgy signed a partnership with GE Renewables that will bring a new line of business for GE and will increase the availability of Emrgy's solution. In addition, Emrgy engineers have finished product testing of our new unit design to ensure optimum system performance for our customers. Also, the Emrgy team spoke at many impactful industry events and attended HydroVision International to kick off the partnership with GE. These events provided platforms to share our hydropower solution with cleantech investors, influencers and potential partners.

Note from the CEO

It’s an exciting time at Emrgy! Our team is growing, and we are officially opening our Boulder office in February. We have deployments planned in three states in the American west this quarter and are busy manufacturing parts for our turbines here in the US. As distributed renewable projects continue to become the choice for generating new capacity both domestically and abroad, I am proud to be part of a team that pursues the most reliable and affordable clean electricity solution available. 

Entering into 2020 our team has spent time returning to our core values, and we are committed to building a company that focuses on sustainability in both what we do and how we do it, innovation that drives our decision making, and accountability and integrity in our relationships with each other and with our customers, partners, and shareholders. There is a lot in store for Emrgy this year, and I hope you will follow along with us!

 Tech News: Testing at Alden Labs

Our engineers have simplified our turbine system design, and defined optimal materials and methods of fabrication, for streamlined, cost-effective manufacturing and assembly. Now that we have built and assembled this new Emrgy turbine, it's time to put it to the test.
Take an inside look at the testing of our twin-turbine system in Alden's artificial canal. 
We have completed testing the performance and hydraulic impacts of our product in partnership with Alden Research Laboratory at their facility in Holden, Massachusetts. The tests span a broad spectrum of operating conditions to ensure system performance across the unit’s entire operational envelope for a given customer's site conditions. The data gathered during these tests will allow Emrgy to create the most effective customized solution for our customers.
