Conduit Energy Recovery

In conduit energy recovery, excess water pressure is converted into energy that can be harnessed to produce hydroelectricity. Sorensen Systems develops and install specialized turbines as replacements for pressure reducing valves, most often in an attempt to retrofit existing system components. It’s common to find conduit energy recovery used in hydro rehabilitation projects.
