Emrgy is a woman-led cleantech company that is transforming waterpower to be as rapidly deployable and cost-effective as solar power. Using innovative hardware and software technology, Emrgy delivers low-cost renewable power generation within water infrastructure — directly addressing the energy/water nexus, balancing intermittent renewables in a distributed grid environment, and abating carbon emissions globally. 

Emrgy is operating distributed hydropower arrays in 4 US states and 3 countries, and is now preparing to scale rapidly through project development using project finance, having already secured the exclusive development rights for over 2600 miles of canals in the North America. Emrgy’s international growth is led by a global partnership with GE Renewable Energy, who now manufactures and sells Emrgy’s equipment in select markets outside the US.
