This whirlpool turbine can power dozens of homes, providing energy 24 hours a day. Belgian company Turbulent have possibly come up with a solution to generate energy for small-scale rural areas. Using the power of water, the turbine can be installed to most river and canals, using the current to produce energy - which the creators claim is enough to power up to 60 homes.
Could this be the future for all energy production?

What is with living things in the water? Free Energy XD it cost money to build,it needs water that is higher altiude to power the turbine and what is the effeciency?

for people wondering: its about 15kW with about 1.7m head and 1.8m3/s flow. its not much, but considering it is relatively small and doesn't require a retaining basin (dam) it is a good idea. i live in the country of water, we have hundreds of lake and thousands of rivers, and my gouverment made it illegal to build dams and hydro electricity plants. in the past they destroyed thousands of hydro plants in order to force people into using theirs. it is a very sad story. and this is why we are still living in shit condition in 2019. people must be free to better their condition and bring society to new high. we must stop having corporate greed as leaders.

What I really find interesting is that you have utilized the kinetic energy of the water to create spin before it ever reaches the turbine. From the video, I can see that this also virtually eliminates turbulence and air pockets that would make the conversion less efficient. I really am impressed.

Here in Australia we a modifying an old hydro power station on a dam built in the 1950s, so that solar power will pump water back to the top during the day, so it can flow back down at night! Quite simple but effective for generating power 24/7.

Try installing one of these. I bet all forms of government, from federal, to state, to even local will do everything they can to prevent you from doing this. Just like collecting rain water.

I don’t think it’s entirely better. It’s just better for small scale power since it won’t block an entire river, and doesn’t need a big one either.

This is worse than the solar panels my Republican neighbors installed. His Bills increased 1000% and demons came out of a hole in the ground in his back yard then his family died all because he installed solar panels, you should hear what happened to my other neighbors that installed a turbine just like this one in the video. Their whole town was sucked in to a demonic vortex and Hillary Clinton was down there too.

Brilliant Idea.Could they not put a removable/lockable Grill by the Sluice Gate to stop larger Debris and Fish from entering the system.They could shape it like a cube so they could drop the sluice gate reducing the waterflow,unlock,spin it so the filter was now horizontal and easy to remove/clean while a fresh side was now in place+if it reduced water flow then increase the drop before it enters the Turbine.

Are you up to now is put 5 or 10 or 20 turbines blow that going down further in the ground and you could have extra energy to pump it back up on top so every Lou City or every house has their own tripping to make your energy

Why not just build a regular water mill next to the river? You won't have to fear for rocks and junk clogging the system, fish are safe and you can do maintenance more easily.

I'm no expert at these kinds of things. But based on life experiences, I feel confident that this video is illustrating the "optimal conditions" for this contraption. Chances are that the river/stream near you isn't powerful enough to drive this kind of turbine to give you adequate power vs monetary investment. If it is, good for you, but if it's a slow moving river, it's just a waste of money. Anyway, isn't this just a scaled down and simplified version of a dam that generates power? Doesn't seem like a new technology. Enlighten me if I'm wrong.
