Portable, low-cost, hydroelectric generator for developing countries

The Kings High School InvenTeam will create an inexpensive, portable, backpack hydroelectric generator called the H2ydrO.  In developing countries, electricity is very often unavailable or unreliable and the H2ydrO will harness the power of water’s clean, renewable, untapped energy.  The H2ydrO will weigh between 60-75 pounds and produce 200 – 400 watts of electricity.  Its energy can be harnessed either in batteries or by adding a direct load through an inverter.
