 Project objective

HyKinetics is an innovative and patented 3-blades axial 20 kW micro hydroelectric generator, able to competitively exploit the hydro-kinetics energy of the flowing water, specifically designed for exploitation of renewable energy on rivers and canals, not using dams or waterfalls. HyKinetics is the first product on the market for micro hydropower sector (< 100 kW) able to achieve a Cost of Electricity of comparable with large hydro plants, solar photovoltaic, biomass and geothermal power technologies and presenting a very limited visual and environmental impact, very important for river applications, subjected to stringent environmental constraints. To enter the market with a standardized and easily accessible market, COSBI targets to address as entry point the installation to canals downstream of dam-based hydroelectric power stations, increasing production of existing large hydro power plants of >5%, i.e 17 TWh/year if applied in all hydropower plants in EU28 (the annual electricity consumption of Slovenia). The potential and acceptance of this market segment has been demonstrated by means of a Customer Validation methodology (discussion and agreements with big players owners of large hydropower plants). The Total Available Market of this segment in Europe amounts to 12.2 GW, able to generate a turnover of 26.8 B€. Then, after entering the market, COSBI will face the huge rural electrification sector, with a market potential of up to 40 B€. The objectives of the project are: 1) Manufacturing of ten 20 kW HyKinetics prototypes (Minimum Viable Product); 2) Installation and validation of the prototypes in real testing sites already selected; 3) Achieve the certifications needed for commercialization and optimization of industrial production to reduce cost of production ; 4) Increase market awareness and demonstrate results to potential clients for product launch just after the project.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "HYKINETICS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
