Inner City Hydropower in Japan


Source:  United Nations University

Japan is an energy-dependent nation which, for better or worse, was crippled in its last and hopefully final war more than a half-century ago.

Since that time, its technological progress has enabled it to deal with energy concerns more dynamically than any other nation.  Those advances were seriously challenged a year ago when the devastating earthquake and tsunami seriously damaged the Tohoku Region and had a ripple effect into the Kanto Region.  Twenty-three of 27 nuclear power plants were shutdown as a precaution after the event, and remain offline.

In Japan, the small-scaled mini- and micro-hydroelectric power plants have been regarded for a considerable time as being suitable for creating electricity in mountainous regions, but they have through refinement come to be regarded as excellent for Japanese cities as well. Kawasaki City Waterworks, Japan Natural Energy Company, and Tokyo Electric Power Company have all been involved in the development of small-scale hydroelectric power plants within Japanese cities.

How can this technology benefit your community or even corporation.  Pay attention to these developments.

    Show you a patent recorded in both the United States of America, Japan, Canada, China and all European countries, India, Australia and South Korea, Russia and Hong Kong

    And bearing the number US 8,147,249 B2

    With regard to lifting the fluid to the highest urges that the present invention can raise huge amounts of water which is can be used industrial for power generation to drop water on the dam turbines, such as those used in dams to produce electrical energy, equivalent to the power generating by nuclear plant or power plant with low cost in construction 80% less than the power plant or nuclear plant, used water only, This new power generation can be used instead of all other power in the future.

    There is a three-dimensional animation for this patent, I can’t send it with this email because of the narrow space given.

      Hello Neda,
      Yes, I am interested in the dynamics of what you have created, though I do not have any direct takers/interested parties I can introduce to you presently.
