A team of mechanical engineering students from Karukutty, in India have engineered a device that can utilize naturally flowing water to generate electricity.
HVPG (High voltage pulse generator) is capable of generating around 5 watts of power on water currents flowing as slow as 0.5m/s. Needless to say, such devices can be beneficial to bring electricity to the remote areas of Kerala as well as other parts of India.
The source of energy can be regarded as a revolutionary step towards harnessing power through clean sources. In addition to being able to generate electricity through clean sources, HPVG also does not harm or affect the aquatic or marine life. It is the perfect way of lighting up lives without harming the environment!
