Creating game-changing hydro technology to make electricity available to everyone.

Luc Jacobs

Innovation Manager

Turbulent developed a new kind of hydropower that has the ability to create decentralized energy for everyone. Its technology is capable of converting potential energy out of a water flow into electrical energy while only needing 0.6m of river fall.

It can easily be integrated in a smart grid using a vortex piloted by intelligent controlling and monitoring software.
