The technology

A breakthrough innovation

Save Innovations offers electricity generation solutions that enhance the low speeds of hydraulic fluids.

These solutions make it possible to produce the electricity just needed at the point of consumption and from available energy not valued to date. For a lasting benefit, Save Innovations has endeavored to design a perfectly integrated set comprising:

  • A drive system (propeller or turbine), which recovers energy from the fluid.
  • An innovative generator that transforms this energy into electricity.
  • A regulator that optimizes low currents and delivers the desired voltage.
  • An integrated bypass to avoid the need for network derivation and to ensure network safety in the event of sudden high flow speeds.
Product available based on the technology

PICOGEN® pico-turbine

The PICOGEN® innovation offers access to a renewable energy on the spot, by valuing the hydraulic flows unused potential, in a move towards a more responsible energy mix and reasoned consumption.

The PICOGEN® technology, with its multiple patents, opens up new possibilities by using energy from low speed flows.

The easy installation and limited maintenance requirements of the PICOGEN® solution result from its stream-lined design, devised to make life easier for users.
