Our MTP:


Revolutionize the way hydrokinetic turbines harvest energy. 

Transform the Marine Hydrokinetic Industry to become as large as solar energy and wind energy to reverse global climate change 

and massively reduce CO2 emissions.


Make our hydrokinetic turbines the most efficient and environmentally friendly Current Energy Converters (CEC) available.



 To live in a world where all energy used by mankind comes from a renewable source. 



  To create, design, develop, optimize, test and facilitate manufacture of proprietary, innovative underwater turbines, for electrical  energy production in near-shore, in-stream, tidal and riverine water currents.

 Hydrokinetic Energy Corp. (HEC) has filed a comprehensive and detailed utility patent application in 2015 with the USPTO and PCT (with reservation for international rights) covering all aspects of our high efficiency turbine design.  These patents establish our position at the forefront of the Hydrokinetic Turbine market worldwide.  Our design patent has been aprouved and issued on May 21, 2019.  In November 2017 we filed a second provisional patent application for an additional performance enhancing device related to protect our latest revolutionary Wildlife and Debris Excluder (WDE) redesign.  We call it a “Vorticized Flow Inducing Wildlife and Debris Excluder”.  There are very few companies in the world that are developing hydrokinetic turbines and none of state-of-the art designs are as efficient or environmentally and wildlife friendly as ours.

  1. Flow Velocity Acceleration Technology: Unique Venturi Flow Accelerator Shroud with Annular Diffuser
  2. Hydrofoil Shaped Rotor and Blades
  3. Wildlife and Debris Excluder inducing Vorticized Flow and Augmenting the Energy Output
  4. Various Installation and Maintenance Methods: Fixed, Floating, Pivoting and Towed
  5. Methodology of Site-specific and Adaptive Turbine Design
  6. Proprietary Electronic Control Module and Software for optimal energy extraction (under development)

Unique engineering concepts comprise the HEC's technology:

  • Hydrofoil shaped rotors and accelerator shrouds extract maximum torque from any flow speed and substantially increase water velocity through the turbine and energy output
  • HEC's excluder (WEC) technology NOT ONLY prevents marine life and debris from entering the turbine and allows for safe passage for larval stages and smaller marine life, but also increases performance and energy output
  • Self orienting and pivoting installation to capture optimal water flow direction
  • Electronic control module and software assures optimal output through flow speed cycles
