SMART WATER
CLEAN ENERGY
BETTER WORLD

We help you turn water into energy.
Then, you turn it into revenue.
Or power your own utility.
Or power a nearby school or stadium.

 

All while precisely managing pressure.

Manage Pressure Create Clean Energy

If you use control valves to reduce pressure for potable or wastewater, you could be converting that pressure differential into electricity and revenue. Better pressure management reduces negative impacts to infrastructure, and generating your own energy reduces operating costs – it’s all possible with the HydroXS from InPipe Energy.

The Next Generation of Pressure Control
The HydroXS

Our new game-changing design creates 50% more energy! The new data-rich dashboard improves pressure management. It’s exactly what water operators want – easy to install and operate and located in a bypass so it’s redundant to operations. Powerful and cost-effective. It’s the right solution.

InPipe Energy Hits Grand Slam Powering Hillsboro Stadium

Our first installation is still generating electricity to power lighting and EV charging stations at the Hillsboro Stadium while reducing water loss, greenhouse gas, and tax payers’ money – and still maintenance-free! Hear the story in this 3-minute video.

Reducing Energy Costs
at Skagit PUD

Our earlier In-PRV is managing pressure and reducing electricity costs at the Division Street booster pump station in Mt. Vernon, Washington.

“Converting excess water pressure into clean, renewable energy is a win for the environment and our ratepayers. Environmental stewardship is one of our core values and we want to preserve our region’s natural resources. As a public utility, we’re always looking to innovate and create greater efficiencies in the operation of our water system, and the East Division Street micro-hydro project checks all the boxes.” 

– George Sidhu, Skagit PUD General Manager.

Turn a Waste Stream
into a Revenue Stream

InPipe Energy makes it easy for water utilities to accurately manage pressure while efficiently converting wasted pressure into energy that can be used for operations, emergency backup power for net metering, or sale to the electric utilities. 

Our Most Valuable Resource

At InPipe Energy, we believe the best way to foster a sustainable water supply is to be ready to mediate the effects of aging infrastructure and grid disruptions. The HydroXS does both. It creates energy on-site while managing pressure, providing grid-independent power as it reduces water loss. We are building resilience into water management.

 

Pressure Management
The HydroXS provides redundancy for existing valves and gives water managers precise control over the pressure in the pipeline during both high and low-flows – something older control valves don’t provide. The dashboard provides real-time, continuous data on flow, upstream/downstream pressure energy production, and even carbon offsets.

 

System Longevity
The new level of precision pressure eliminates chatter, vibration and pressure pulses that can lead to leaks and water loss. And because it monitors operations around the clock, maintenance needs are significantly minimized.

 

Reliability and Safety

The product combines smart control software with commercially-proven hardware that is reliable, cost-effective and readily available. All components – including microturbines, control valves and piping are safe for use in water pipelines.

 

Energy Savings

Instead of burning off excess pressure through friction like a traditional valve, our HydroXS converts it into electricity that can be used by the water agency, or routed to the grid to help offset rising energy costs and generate revenue.

We Share the Load

In the first steps of our process, our in-house experts do the heavy lifting for you. We conduct the preliminary feasibility report for your chosen site that includes hydraulic analysis, an energy assessment, a carbon offset analysis,
and a summary of potential revenue.
