Lucid Energy to develop citywide hydropower system

Lucid Energy Inc. has signed an agreement with the Portland Development Commission (PDC) and the city of Portland, Ore. to partner on the development of a hydropower system within the city.

The partners plan to collaborate with the Portland Water Bureau on a project that will use Lucid Energy’s patented LucidPipe Power System, an in-pipe turbine that captures energy from fast-moving water inside of gravity-fed water pipelines to produce electricity. The partners also will identify various applications for the technology, such as providing power to eco-districts, car charging stations, desalination plants, purification systems and off-grid water agency tasks.

The agreement also calls for collaboration on a first-ever in-conduit hydropower symposium in Portland, with the prospect of drawing the participation of both local and international leaders in energy and water technology.
