Rentricity Inc. -- a producer of clean and renewable energy from hydrokinetic applications in potable drinking water distribution systems, industrial water systems and wastewater systems -- will be presenting “What’s New in Renewables: Costs are Down, Technology Options Up” to managers, engineers, commissioners, and purchasers who will be attending the Green California Summit & Exposition 2010.
Allie Corless, VP of marketing and channel partnerships at Rentricity, will lead the presentation.
Rentricity makes use inherent pressure differentials to spin turbines and create clean electricity, which in turn produces revenue or expense offsets for its customers. This helps for integrated information services and enables municipalities achieve their environmental goals.
The presentation will emphasize on the need for sustainable technology solutions to balance the increasing costs of electricity associated with the treatment and distribution of water. Corless will be explaining Rentricity’s Flow-to-Wire energy recovery system, together with many previous as well as present projects undertaken by the company.
Corless had commented the state of California has always been and continues to be a leader in the area of green technology innovations.
Rentricity was very happy to be involved with awareness-raising activities in the state, especially taking into account the fact that 19 percent of electricity produced in California is set aside towards treating and distributing water and wastewater.
Corless said Rentricity is presently developing a 225-kilowatt project in the southern part of the state, and are focussed on building a strong presence in California.
The Green California Summit & Exposition 2010 conference will be held from March 15 to 17 at the Sacramento Convention Center. Rentricity Inc. makes uses of unique energy recovery configurations to convert the untapped energy in several man-made processes into electricity. The energy recovery system which is called Flow-to-Wire converts excess pressure in water mains and other pipes into clean electric power. A single Flow-to-Wiresystem can produce between 20 and 300 kilowatts of electricity.
As this electricity can then be sold onto the grid, Rentricity gives its generating partners an extra source of revenue and a way to balance rising electricity rates. Rentricity Flow-to-Wire systems do not have any negative environmental impacts and represent a new class of clean, renewable hydrokinetic energy. Rentricity will produce hundreds of megawatts in aggregate as they installs thousands of units worldwide.Carolyn John is a Contributor to TMCnet. To read more of her articles, please columnist page.
