GKinetic Energy Ltd

GKinetic wishes to become the go-to supplier of distributed hydro solutions that can unlock clean energy from free flowing water just about anywhere and within a matter of hours. 80% of the market for distributed-scale hydrokinetic energy generation remains untapped, representing a minimum 6 million of the company’s market-ready 12kW units. To win just 1% market share would mean sales of 60,000 units and €3.84 billion in turnover. The design can be scaled up to MW tidal applications and this is part of the company's product roadmap. It is the company’s vision to see large-scale deployment of its turbines all over the world, directly contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The company wants to make a significant impact in the fight against climate change by opening up the market of local hydrokinetic generation. GKinetic is a firm believer in the large scale roll-out of hydrokinetic solutions as a key player in distributed energy systems giving power independence and control to end users from the only renewable generation source that is 100% predictable.

goodbag

Goodbag is a smart and reusable shopping bag that rewards customers for bringing their own bag and protecting the environment. With goodbag users can track their positive impact on the environment and plant trees, collect plastic waste out of the ocean or receive discounts as a reward every time they bring their own bag to a store. The bag connects contactless with the free goodbag app where users can track their impact in real-time and complete challenging challenges and earn cool achievements. The goodbag system is currently active in over 1,000 stores in Austria, Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Portugal and Switzerland and used by industry leaders like Europes largest Airport Heathrow in the United Kingdom or the Swiss retail chain Denner in over 800 of their stores. We offer our service to brands that are looking for innovative ways to communicate with potential customers while protecting the environment.

H2BlueDynamics

Our Game-Changing Project H2bluedynamics is a safe, simple, and cost-effective H2 fuel and propulsion system, which allows H2 propulsion for retrofits and newbuilding anywhere and anytime without the need of costly and dangerous H2 Logistics. The H2bluedynamics, will utilize ultra-low pressure at ambient operation temperature and controllable gas release storage fuel system. Due to the friendly characteristics, our system can be easily certified by Class societies and Flag administrations given that the IGF code still does not have provisions for H2 as marine fuel. In addition, the onboard H2 production is a cutting-edge feature of the Project, providing unlimited geographical operational possibilities regardless of the availability of H2 supply chain. A vessel will maintain the crucial H2 fuel capabilities such as large range and high service speed, but will be also able to refuel wherever there is access to the electricity grid. Introducing trailblazing innovations and revolutionizing New Business models, our Project will benefit H2 Economy substantially from the development of the first worldwide concept of Virtual Hydrogen Logistics.
