Public Research Institute, (PRI), an accomplished 501(c)3, non-profit research organization, in it's thirty-sixth year, operating world wide. 
The Institute's Oceanographic Research Division is currently processing data from the recently completed Pegasus Expedition.
The Institute remains committed to applying technologies to solve key issues impacting mankind.  Issues of current focus are as follows:
The Institute's Solar Division is configuring rooftop, equator tilted, PV arrays  with power outputs ranging from 6 - 600 Kwe, using mass produced components, off Grid or Grid-Connected,  with or without storage,.
We invite you to explore our site and learn more about our exciting organization
The Institute's Geothermal Division has performed pioneering work in the field of low temperature energy conversion, and developed power cycles for sources between 25oC and 125 oC.  The Institute is working with affiliates to organize an Energy Lab for the purpose of improving the efficiencies of these cycles by 20% or more, to improve heat recovery and geothermal systems.
The Institute's Wind Division designed a family of 4th generation turbines, with rotor efficiencies of 96% and generator efficiencies > 90%, using permanent magnet alternators, to provide improved reliability and output.  This family of turbines are rated at 7 m/sec, with nameplate capacities of 250, 600, and 1250 Kwe.  They are particularly suited for communities of 100- 20,000 dwellings providing power at $ 0.03 / Kwh at Class 3 sites.

The Institute's work in Namibia, St. Helena, and the Virgin Islands has given it access to financing sources interested in renewable energy projects, and expertise essential for the successful implementation of such projects
The Institute provides advice and engineering services to community and REMC project developers, at rates below those charged by commercial firms..

If your community or REMC desires to convert to renewable energy for it's power source, talk to us.  The initial discussions are free, and there is no obligation to continue.  For further information consult the Community Project page.
The Institute's Hydro Division has forged relationships with Ossberger and Siemens for delivery of turnkey systems capable of exploiting heads greater than 5 m, at capacities from 1 - 20 Mwe.
