Early this week, we welcomed two visitors – Prof. Philippe Mandin (IRDL) and Mr Erik Zilliox (GIP Campus E.S.P.R.I.T. Industries) from France. Following a number of email conversation over the summer, we arranged a laboratory tour to introduce our Micro-hydropower energy recovery technology using Pump-as-Turbine. The team and the visitors had a productive discussion on future collaboration on our shared research interest in Pump-as-Turbine.
