There is an inextricable link between conventional energy and clean water and the two cannot coexist without bearing associated costs that are often not fully appreciated.  At the same time, the need for both is increasing and the prevalence of both is declining at an enhanced rate.   Pure clean water is an extremely scarce resource and Llanllyr is one of the purest sources of this precious commodity on earth.  Steeped in history, pure spring water has been extracted on site in Llanllyr, Wales since in 1180.  The company was founded in 1999 by one of the family who have owned and managed the site for over 400 years.  Learn More.

WindESCO is a Boston based energy technology company that strives to both enhance the performance of Wind Turbine Generators (WTG’s) whilst at the same time reduce the load on critical functional components of the WTG such as gear boxes.  Founded in 2014 by one of the former technology managers at First Wind (now SunEdison), WindESCo is developing complex algorithms to allow WTGs to communicate more effectively in an array and therefore function in a significantly enhanced manner and perform more efficiently in irregular wind environments.  A combination of which will provide increased long term production revenues and reduced damage and wear.  Learn More.

SunTech Drive delivers the most efficient off-grid nanogrid controllers on the market.  Their patent pending designs represent a dramatic departure from the large and costly legacy controllers of the past.  They replace legacy electromagnetic cores and windings with high speed digital switching silicon and adaptive firmware.  Not only does this result in controllers that are an order of magnitude smaller and lighter it also allow them to incorporate multiple system components into one integrated controller. Most compellingly, their nanogrid controllers require only one-third to one-half the solar PV capacity of legacy controllers to run any nanogrid scale load.  This represents a 40% or 50% reduction in total project cost for most solar pumping deployments.  This lower need for PV panel capacity makes solar a much more economically compelling and renewable alternative to diesel power. Learn More.
