...is an early-stage energy company with compelling patented technology capable of delivering affordable, clean, renewable energy and potable water at grid-scale.
Pump storage hydro (PSH) platforms are built near shore in bodies of water that provide the water reservoir needed for the storage system.
Because of unsuitable topography in many places, only about a dozens nations can take advantage of traditional PSH systems. Humpback Hydro’s platform brings this proven technology to the world.
With our patented system, 165 nations can now use PSH, the best and most proven way to date to store grid-scale energy over the long term.
A natural extension of the PSH infrastructure is desalination infrastructure to process potable water as an output of the PSH process.
Recent coverage of Humpback Hydro...
...smaller innovators like Humpback Hydro are well-positioned to capitalize on surging green energy demand
...this technology, flexible and scalable from 1 MW to 1,000 MW or more, and can be used could be used to desalinate water and are capable of supporting housing and commercial developments
...Humpback Hydro is designing a (PSH) platform that sits just "meters offshore" near the demand centers that need them most. (Cue the same argument for offshore wind, which presumably would fit nicely with this concept.)

"The very real potential of this technology is 80 to 85% efficiency, maybe up to 90%!"
Assistant Professor, Civil (Hydrotechnical) Engineering University of British Columbia
"Combining systems reduces capital investment and solves the desalination brine disposal challenge since 10–20 times more water is required to generate one person's power needs than to generate their fresh water needs"
