SMART WATER

CLEAN ENERGY

BETTER WORLD

Water agencies can now manage pressure while producing renewable energy-turning excess pressure into a revenue stream.

SCROLL DOWN

TURN WATER PRESSURE INTO ENERGY

If you use pressure reducing valves (PRVs) to reduce pressure for potable or wastewater, then the In-PRV will convert that pressure into electricity, revenue, and extremely quick ROI on your CAPEX. Precision pressure control, lower operating costs, more efficient and redundant operations, and renewable clean energy for your community - it's all possible with the In-PRV from InPipe Energy.

THE In-PRV

The In-PRV (pressure recovery valve) is redundant to current operations. It is located in a bypass, making it easy to install onto an existing or new pipeline with minimal impact on water operations. The product combines smart control software with commercially-proven hardware that is reliable cost-effective and readily available.

SMART PRESSURE MANAGEMENT

If you use control valves to manage excess pressure in your pipelines, our In-PRV (Pressure Recovery Valve) system lets you manage pressure more precisely providing advanced water loss control, protecting your pipelines from leaks while converting wasted energy into revenue – lowering your costs and benefitting ratepayers. Unlike alternative custom-designed solutions, the In-PRV is an end-to-end, standardized, turnkey product. This approach keeps installation, operations and maintenance costs low. The In-PRV meets established requirements of water agencies and electric utilities. It interconnects to the grid using the standard approach set in place by the solar energy.

Turn A Waste Stream Into A Revenue Stream

InPipe Energy makes it easy for water agencies to accurately manage pressure and efficiently convert wasted pressure into energy that can be used for operations, emergency backup power, and route to the grid for net metering or sale to the electric utilities. The financial benefits are many and versatile and can deliver a short ROI on this smart CAPEX.

YOUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET

InPipe Energy’s In-PRV is a turnkey solution that enables water agencies to more accurately manage pressure in pipelines while converting excess pressure into clean, low cost electricity.

The In-PRV easily integrates into existing water pipelines, providing key benefits for water agencies:

PRECISE PRESSURE MANAGEMENT

The In-PRV 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 PRVs don’t provide. The dashboard provides real-time, continuous data on flow, upstream/downstream pressure and energy production.

SYSTEM LONGEVITY

The new level of precision presure eliminate 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

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.

WASTE REDUCTION

Instead of dissipating excess pressure like a traditional valve, the In-PRV 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 recurring revenue.

At InPipe Energy, we believe the best way to provide a safe and secure water supply is by accurately managing flow and pressure and monetizing wasted pressure into renewable energy which can then be reinvested into existing water infrastructure.  By doing this, we will be making water and energy more available and affordable for cities all over the world.
