Abstract
This project will make hydrokinetic river energy, a completely renewable resource, into an economical source of clean power for river communities. ORPC will accomplish this by optimizing the prototype RivGen Power System design for lower speed river currents that are prvalent throughout the world. The RivGen Power System generates zero-emission electricity from river currents using no fossil fuels whatsoever andproducing no gas or liquid emissions. The prposed new design will also significantly improve the prototype system & #39;s overall efficiency, making it a viable alternative to fossil fuel generation in river communities.
