Water, the world’s most undervalued resource.

InPipe Energy believes in a future where clean energy is as abundant as clean water. Water is often taken for granted because it’s cheap and plentiful just as it’s underappreciated for its potential to generate reliable energy.  At InPipe, our favorite question is, “What if” we can produce renewable energy from existing or new water pipeline infrastructure – realizing that a majority of U.S. and worldwide energy comes from nuclear and fossil fuels? What if we can ensure energy that’s both predictable and consistent? And what if we can do all that without harming the environment? 

We can and we have.

We’ve made it our mission to realize this potential with a proven solution that is reliable and safe – with configurable sizes which are easy to install and deploy.  Since it’s ecologically friendly, there’s a quick permitting process. Clean, distributed baseload power to offset your fossil sources or compliment intermittent renewables, add resiliency, and reduce non-revenue water.

Leadership Team.

At the nexus of water and energy exists a substantial opportunity to impact climate change and ensure water flows in the event of disruption—it takes a seasoned, experienced team to not only seize this opportunity, but share it with the world.

Technically savvy with decades of experience working in the energy and water industries, our leadership team has a long successful track record in commercializing energy projects for water companies.
