Watts Water Energy Harvesting

 

For over 140 years, Watts Water Technologies has made it their goal to improve the comfort, safety, and quality-of-life for people worldwide. Along with sustainability, Watts is invested in providing high-quality products, systems, and solutions for the conveyance, conservation, control, and safe use of water. As a part of this effort, Watts has started lines of interconnected “smart” technologies. The 2021-22 Watts SCOPE team undertook the challenge of harvesting waste energy in our water supply to power these types of devices. They researched concepts, built testing and measurement rigs, tested prototypes, and have produced designs that meet the energy output specifications of the project.
