GKinetic Energy Ltd. was founded in 2014 and is based in Newcastle West, County Limerick in Ireland. GKinetic is developing a range of innovative hydrokinetic turbines for both river and tidal flows. From the start, one of the main drivers has been the huge market opportunity to harness this reliable and predictable renewable energy resource. The design is completely unique and offers an improved solution for all the issues with existing hydro devices.
GKinetic receives great support and funding from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). A key strength has been the ability to identify and secure partners. This collaborative approach has resulted in cost effective Research & Development and remarkable milestone achievements.
GKinetic aims to continue to prove out technology at different scales and demonstrate our novel solution for flow acceleration and tidal energy extraction.
