Harnessing the Power of Highways
KinergyPower is a new form of alternative energy which is also an example of distributed generation. KinergyPower was invented by two brothers Stefanos and Dimitri Horianopolous in Greece in 2002. Their system uses a series of hydraulic pistons to absorb the kinetic energy from the motion of traffic and transform it into hydraulic pressure. This pressure powers a hydro-generator unit which produces electricity. KinergyPowerUSA was established in September 2005 and is based in Bedford, NY. It is headed by a management team that includes local Westchester business executives Demetri and Susan Papacostas.
“Wherever there is motion, there is potential for KinergyPower. Trucks, automobiles, trains, and even people all generate some level of kinetic energy. The heavier and more consistent the traffic, the greater the wasted energy and the greater the potential for KinergyPower. Our technology is the key to capturing and harvesting this energy in an efficient and economical way.”
