Vision and goals
Our challenge is the sustainable supply of humanity with clean energy.
Rivers are the life lines of the earth, therefore it is essential to protect and use them. Energy and clean water are the bases for economic development, and our goal is to assure supply thereof.
Floods are the most common disaster scenario worldwide, and with our project we help improve the flood warning systems.
We ourselves act, and inspire others act and create alternatives. We want to do our part for a more liveable society and environment.
From an idea to a GmbH, that’s how the e.Ray Europa GmbH developed.
From an idea to a limited company (GmbH), that’s how e.Ray Europa GmbH went up.
The e.Ray Europa GmbH was founded in 2015 to provide building blocks for energy transition and sustainable water management. We are a spin-off from the Institute of Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics of the Darmstadt Technical University. The project was based on several final theses and a subsequent EXIST founder scholarship. Meanwhile, more than 5 years of development work have been invested in the technology and the product/market fit.
The e.Ray products are making a contribution to sustainable use of nature and the living creatures populating it.
On the one hand, the focus is on the fish friendliness of the power plant. For this purpose, care was taken in design to assure the safe passage through the plant of any aquatic organisms.
A patented solution was developed for anchoring the power deck, using the trees on the river bank as a support.
In addition, we rely on wood as a cost-effective, resistant and sustainable construction material. We pay attention to sustainable cultivation and processing.
By using local wood species such as Douglas fir or oak, we avoid long transport routes and thus save CO2. These native wood types are particularly water-resistant and therefore long-lasting.
