Lucid Energy Technologies, a company that harvests power from turbines within water pipes, has set up its headquarters in Portland.
Lucid Energy has its roots in Indiana where the technology was developed but had strong ties to the local economy. Northwest Pipe Company of Vancouver has provided funding for the business in recent years and Renewable Energy Composite Solutions, a subsidiary of Vancouver based Christensen Shipyards Ltd., is the company's manufacturing partner.
