Waterotor Energy Technologies

Hydroelectrical generator to harvest electricity from slow moving water.
At a glance:

Waterotor came to Design 1st for help commercializing its hydroelectric generator technology for slow-moving water. Waterotor had a proof-of-function prototype that was successful in generating electricity in laboratory conditions but to get to market they needed to redesign their system to meet cost, transportation, and volume manufacturing needs.
