Archimedean screw designed for the harvesting of energy from rivers.
Standard river energy harvesting devices have multiple issues: from the cost, to the environment damage, to the actual inefficiency of the mechanisms.
The aqergy device based on the Archimedean screw provides an environment-friendly, highly scalable, easy to maintain way of harvesting rivers energy.
In order to optimize the production of energy, the device is to be equipped with magnetic gears with adjustable ratio controlled by algorithms shaped by machine learning systems.
The device is modular to provide a scalability that could, in theory, extend to the full extent of the river course.
