Abstract:
    Our idea is based on generating energy based on a low speed canal water by utilizing the concept of vortex.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Our country has a short fall 4000-5000 MegaWatt of electrical energy. We plan to reduce it by providing localized small scaled energy production units to farmers and other remote areas.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   This project can benefit a lot of people that includes normal households, farmers, and people residing near canals or rivers that flow all year round. A large project based on our prototype can power nearly 100-120 houses easily.
How will the solution works
    This project is based on the concept of voriticity, We plan to create energy that is clean and renewable and easily available. A separate canal from a main river flow is taken at a small height and is made to move in vortex. A turbine attached at the center of this vortex creates energy. And the water is directed back into the main stream.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    We haven't encountered anyone yet.
