VerdErg envisions a future where low head hydropower can be as reliable and cost effective as energy from fossil fuels, but with a considerably lower carbon footprint.

We recognise that our attempts to lower the carbon footprint go in vain if our solutions do not also work in conjunction with the environment.

Our technologies therefore minimise negative impact to oceans, estuaries and rivers, while also maximising existing local capabilities of people and industry.
