Hydrovolts. Hydrovolts was founded in 2007 as a result of the founders directing a study examining the hydrokinetic potential of tidal systems in the Pacific Northwest.


The study concluded that hydrokinetics was a promising field, but the environmental regulations and permitting burdens surrounding natural waterways were insurmountable at a large scale. The company’s founders thus focused on artificial waterways and developed the Flipwing prototype for irrigation canals in 2009, the year the company first received funding. In the intervening years, the company has raised over $3M, which it has used to hone its technology, pursue four patents to protect its revolutionary approach to micro hydropower, and develop waterfall and canal turbines.

The company’s 15 kW waterfall turbine (WF-10-15) will be commercially available in early 2013. Please email if you are interested in purchasing or distributing our product. DDoS Attacks Spread Beyond Banking. U.S.

DDoS Attacks Spread Beyond Banking

Electric Utility Suffers Outage as Bank Strikes Continue As distributed-denial-of-service attacks on banks continue, a U.S. electric utility also reportedly is a DDoS victim. On March 7, DDoS protection provider Prolexic announced it had worked with an unidentified metropolitan utility company to mitigate an attack that in mid-February hit the company's website, as well as its online payment and automated pay-by-phone billing systems. The attack took those online platforms offline for two days, Prolexic stated. There is no evidence to tie this attack to the same hacktivist group, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters, that is now in the third phase of its assault on U.S. banking institutions. "Utilities are another vertical market that is likely to be victimized in the coming months as attackers look beyond daily targets like e-commerce and financial services," says Stuart Scholly, president at Prolexic, in a statement.
