Natel Energy is a California-based company with a mission to mitigate climate change and build climate resilience by providing hardware and software solutions that enable a 100% renewable grid via a sustainable hydropower backbone. Climate change is water change, and hydropower is situated strategically at the confluence of climate mitigation and adaptation.
Hydropower is a crucial component of a low-carbon, renewable grid because of its reliability, flexibility and complementary generation characteristics to wind and solar.
Hydropower projects are also multi-purpose water projects that can be designed to support climate resilient watershed function. Natel’s solutions address cost, operations and environmental performance challenges at the heart of unlocking additional sustainable, reliable hydropower generation – both from the existing fleet and from new projects that are designed to maintain or enhance river connectivity while producing reliable, renewable energy.
