Joint Venture Opportunity

Last updated: April 2018

The Opportunity

The KCT is currently commercialising in Europe and Australia, with projects and trials underway.
Kourispower is looking for JV Partners – Exclusive Licensees and  Distributors – to assist in the commercialisation of the KCT in world markets. These JV partners may be hydroelectricity companies, irrigation authorities, manufacturers to the hydro industry, or businesses connected to the power industry that can commercialise and identify projects for the KCT.

A Global Industry Champion is also being sought, with the will and the means, to commercialise and globalise the KCT. The available equity and the business model are negotiable.

Market Attractivness

Last year, the world’s power stations generated around 19,000 Billion kWh of electricity; nevertheless 1.6 billion people still have no access to electricity at all. Electricity supplies would have to triple by 2025, and double again to achieve the current OECD average of 9,000kwh for each of the world’s 10 billion people in 2040!
The main attractiveness of the KCT is that it makes hydroelectricity more competitive and thereby avails itself of current Government Regulatory incentives for the development of renewable energy.

Furthermore, retrofitting the KCT at existing hydro facilities can in some jurisdictions substantially reduce the regulatory paperwork associated with new energy projects, as it is additional to the current facility.

Commercialisation

The KCT will initially be commercialised in Europe, India, Australia and New Zealand. The Mark2 Transportable is presently a priority for the Team, which consists of two Exclusive Licensees  (Europe and India, Australia and New Zealand) with Distributors for India, Canada & the USA.  New Exclusive Licensees and Distributors would join the Team and together help commercialise the KCT.

A Global Champion would be expected to accelerate this commercialisation at all levels. The prospects for Renewable Energy, particularly for Micro/Mini Hydro, in this energy-starved world and current environmental crisis, are limitless. Micro /Mini Hydro is the sleeping giant of Renewable Energy.

If you or your company is interested in a JV, more detailed KCT information is available upon the signing of a non-disclosure agreement.

OUR PATENTS

The KCT has been patent protected since September 1998, when the “KOURIS CENTRI TURBINE GENERATOR” received a Notice of Allowance for Letters Patent in the U.S. Since then, it has secured 18 patents worldwide,

The U.S. Patent was subsequently granted and published by the U.S.P.T.O. on 5th September, 2000. The Patent Co-operation Treaty (P.C.T.) International Application was published globally on the 27th April, 2000. Applications for International Patents were filed through the P.C.T. in each nominated country on 21st April 2001.

All 18 key nations of relevance to the K.C.T. were secured and brought under the intellectual property umbrella. In short the global hydroelectricity market is locked in.

Furthermore, KCT Mark2 Patents are now also being sought in over 60 countries.
