In-PRV, pressure recovery valve - A new product that produces a new source of low cost renewable energy, reduces carbon and extends the life of infrastructure
Water delivery is energy and carbon intensive. Indeed, the distribution of water requires a certain energy to pressurise and transport the water. This energy is currently used from the current electricity network, that uses grey sources of energy to generate electricity. Nowadays the pressure in pipes is controlled by valves that use a friction mechanism to manage the pressure. This is inefficient and the innovator has identified control valves that waste up to 350 kW, 3.8M lbs CO2 /Yr. per valve. The In-PRV solution produces renewable energy and accurately controls pressure in these pipes. It is a turn-key, software and sensor-based, modular solution, that installs efficiently in water pipelines and electric grid. This product has the potential to be the lowest cost-of-energy for a distributed renewable energy source at 3-5 cents/kWh.
