InPipe Energy

Turning water pressure into energy

InPipe Energy is at the nexus of energy and water, generating renewable energy from water pipelines and providing sustainable water control infrastructure.

InPipe has developed the In-PRV, a digitally enabled, pressure recovery valve that converts running water to renewable energy in water pipelines. The In-PRV provides precise pressure and flow control to extend the life of infrastructure and save water; efficient production of renewable energy to reduce operational costs, and benefit ratepayers; and reduced reliance on carbon-based grid power to help meet climate action goals and build resilience with a new, clean energy resource.
