Categories: Power Solutions

There are innovative and creative ideas coming out every day.  Through the sharing of these great ideas, we can continue to dream on and better them.  This simple system allows you to generate energy every time you turn on the tap. The Pipe Waterwheel is designed to be installed inline with existing pipes, and it uses the flow of water to turn a set of mini energy-generating turbines.


Designed by Korean innovator Ryan Jongwoo Choi, the ES Pipe Waterwheel is an independent system that contains mini turbines which generate power from flowing water. Every time someone turns on the tap, it creates energy which can then be stored for future use or implemented straight away.

It is also easy to use and install. The ES Pipe Waterwheel can be placed along practically any length of water pumping piping. The waterwheel system then generates power every time someone turns on the tap for a drink of water or a shower. The product has been named as a finalist in the 2012 International Design Excellence Awards. Click below to watch the product in action.
