ASSOCIATED COMPANY MEMBER Natel Energy Inc.
Based out of Alameda, California and founded in 2005 by MIT alumni, Natel Energy is the patent holder and producer of the hydroengine , a new hydropower tur
® bine that enables the cost- effective production of distributed, base- load energy from low- head hydropower resources.
Natel’s hydroengine efficiently captures kinetic energy from large volumes of water with no risk of cavitation, enabling the more cost effective generation of power from non- powered dams, irrigation canals and run- of- river installations. Natel deploys its turbines using a new approach to hydropower development called Ecosmarthydro ™ . Whereas conventional hydropower is characterized by a centralized approach to project planning and large environmental footprints, Ecosmarthydro involves the watershed- level development of cascades of multiple, strategically cited low- head hydropower projects that are operated in an integrated manner using Natel’s proprietary watershedos analytics and operations platform. Ecosmart Hydro is anchored in the belief that it is possible to develop water resources for power production in a manner that simultaneously minimizing negative environmental and social impacts while creating multiple co- benefits ( improved flood management, groundwater recharge, coupled irrigation systems, etc.).
