R12410: Harvesting Energy From Moving Water


Harvesting Energy from Moving Water

Roadmap Summary Roadmap Information

This group will be creating a roadmap of projects aimed at harvesting energy from water. A pair of Fall/Winter MSD teams are working to develop a water kite and a towing platform to test the feasibility of harvesting water from a moving body, with the goal of testing in the RIT pool. Potential future applications, to be determined by the team, include development of a smaller scale flow table or tow tank, devices to test in these environments (microhydroelectric systems, for example), and applications on-campus or in developing nations. This team will require support from ME and ISE students.

This group will be focusing on harvesting energy from moving water.
