State Tries Steam Power from Pressurized Pipes System

[] New York-based energy recovery company Rentricity has received financial support from the Rhode Island Renewable Energy Fund to support two pre-development renewable energy programs in the State in cooperation with the Pawtucket Water Supply Board and Providence Water. The company has developed a “Flow-to-Wire” micro-turbine system that is powered by excess pressure found in piping systems for drinking water, and claims the systems can produce between 30 kW and 200 kW of power. Rentricity was approved as a member in the Alternative Resource Provider Sector of the New England Power Pool (NEPOOL) in February. This membership will provide the company with the ability to sell the energy produced by a Flow-to-Wire system, and establishes an accounting for renewable energy credits (RECs) based on the system’s output.
