Mission and Vision

Identification of additional groundwater resources that redefine the global water crisis narrative. This disruptive technology shows the unrecognized and untapped potential of these renewable groundwater resources. A paradigm shift among the traditionally-trained hydrologists will follow. Early adopters of the technology have come to realize the traditional hydrogeologic models grossly under-estimate the presence, availability, and recharge methods of these water resources. Much like discovering the additional moons around Saturn and erosion on Mars, our technology shows there is still much to learn about the world around us and the readily available water resources that are literally running beneath our feet. The benefits:
  • socioeconomic stability and growth
  • reduce stress on traditional surface water and groundwater sources
  • reduce the environmental impacts of desalination / saltwater reverse osmosis (SRO) / reverse osmosis (RO)
  • Provide local solutions with minimal infrastructure / conveyance requirements
  • Integrate renewable energy power supplies to minimize carbon footprint
  • Humanitarian benefits
    • Reduce infant mortality
    • Increase literacy rates among women and children
    • Reduce vector borne / water-related diseases
    • Increase food production through the availability of irrigation water supplies
    • Reduce tensions associated communities dealing with water scarcity/security issues
    • Food security
    • Incentivize public and private investment in areas with known-good water supplies
    • Provide water supplies to assist with HADR missions
    • Myriad applications of these resources for agricultural, municipal and industrial use

Innovation Description

Integrating traditional earth science tradecraft and cutting edge technology, Power 7 locates and develops previously undiscovered, renewable, and sustainable groundwater resources for water-poor and water-starved markets. Commercially proven, developed water resources have demonstrated 30+ years of continuous operation. Proving the presence of large quantities of untapped groundwater, Power 7 is redefining how the water resources are identified and managed.
How does your innovation work?
Merging traditional Earth Science tradecraft with cutting edge technologies, Power 7's algorithms are able to precisely locate and develop previously undiscovered groundwater resources. Geochemical "fingerprint" testing proves the water is differentiated from other local water resources. Pump testing further demonstrates the discrete nature of these water resources. Properly managed wells have been operating and providing water at a consistent volume and with a consistent quality for more than 30 years. Importantly, these resources were developed in some of the most autstere locations in the world where traditional experts believed there was an absence of water.

Competitive Advantage

Power 7 locates and develops previously undiscovered and differentiated groundwater resources that are supplied via integrated "fast path" networks of fractured bedrock. As a result, these water resources are not linked to an existing aquifer and are not accounted for in the current water balance equation. These vast flows of water provide a much needed resource to address the current and future water demands. Developing these resources will provide enduring water supply solutions that can be used as a catalyst for socioeconomic stability and growth.

Planned Goals and Milestones

Transition TGE into a software as a service (SAAS) product with a tiered subscription-based business model. Integrate our data and information on a platform with categorized layers of data in support of customer information requirements.
  • Identify and investor who sees the value of our services and has a value-investor approach.
  • Develop AI/ML/IT for broader distribution and diversification of services
  • Conduct exploration and development project to assist with marketing and business development
  • Grow the company through strategic staffing goals and milestones.
