    We can't undo the past,
    ​We can only face the future.

Innovation Alliance

Working with the best and brightest innovators across industries and interests, Whooshh Innovations has launched the Innovation Alliance.  It is designed  to resolve difficulties associated with migratory fish passage, and at the same time return hydropower to the forefront of renewable energy planning to reduce our reliance on carbon fuels.  This initiative is designed to bring together diverse interests to solve real-world problems around fish migration and restoration, by working with dam owners and operators to bring innovative solutions to old problems.

 Whooshh believes that collaboration takes us farther than simply going it alone. Are you a forward-thinking organization who recognizes the benefits of doing things differently to create positive change in the world. Through the Alliance, we use science and technology to accelerate the recovery of migratory fish runs without sacrificing the water and hydropower we need to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Our Alliance will help generate more clean hydropower while helping to restore fish runs around the world

Corporations

Since the days of the Industrial Revolution, the corporate world has grown and evolved to incredible levels of creativity and innovation.  New technologies and ideas emerge daily that bring innumerable benefits to society.  As a developer of game-changing technology, Whooshh Innovations seeks to partner with like-minded companies that are continually pushing the boundaries of what is possible.  Whether finding creative ways to source new clean energy or developing new software to enable positive change, Whooshh believes collaboration takes us farther than simply going it alone. Are you a progressive company that embraces innovation? Do you have a green mandate to reduced CO2 but have come to realize the limitations of intermittent power such as wind and solar? Whooshh Innovations seeks to partner with smart, forward-thinking organizations who want to increase your use of renewable energy and at the same time help fish recovery efforts at dams on our planet. We work with the best and brightest to help harness more water, save more fish, and generate more clean power for a better world.        

Hydro Power Owners

The hydropower industry has been a stable source of clean, carbon-free energy for generations.   While other forms of clean energy have emerged, few have performed with the consistency and reliability of hydropower, a steady stalwart providing electricity in tandem with the constant flow of water.   

As with any industry, hydropower has begun to see the need to adapt.  Whooshh and its partners in innovation are bringing changes forward to accelerate growth and progress in hydropower equipment, systems, designs and practices.  From upgraded fish passage to efficient turbines to system optimization, Whooshh and its innovation partners are working to bring new ideas forward that will accelerate the pace of change and modernization that will return hydropower to the forefront of renewable energy planning.    

Do you have products, services and ideas that will move the dial? Whooshh Innovations seeks to partner with smart, forward-thinking organizations who recognize the benefits of doing things differently. We work with the best and brightest to help harness more water, save more fish and generate more clean power for a better world.    

NGO's

Man’s manipulation of river systems has had a detrimental effect on migratory fish species.  Where rivers formerly teemed with salmon and other native fish species making their migratory journeys, numbers have continued to decline to levels approaching the unsustainable. Today, there are many conservation groups and NGOs who are making significant efforts to swing the pendulum back toward prior levels.   

In sharing the goal of returning stocks to their historic levels, Whooshh Innovations seeks to partner with NGOs and conservation organizations to work toward the common goal of restoration.  Technology has advanced to where it has come full circle and can now be an asset in conjunction with the many conservation efforts being made.   

Are you working on river or basin restoration projects?  Involved in fish passage efforts?  Working to gather effective data for conservation studies? Whooshh believes in collaboration and seeks  to promote fish recovery projects, navigate regulatory frameworks, carry out policy advocacy and engage in community fundraising and outreach events– all toward the goal of reversing the decline in migratory species.   

Tribes & First Nations

Long before man began adapting rivers to meet agricultural and power generation needs, rivers teemed with salmon and other species making their migratory journeys through pristine rivers.  Indigenous peoples of that time sustained themselves on this bounty and saw those fish stocks diminish as development progressed.  

In sharing the goal of returning fish runs to their historic levels, Whooshh Innovations seeks to partner with tribal organizations to work toward reaching their goal of fish restoration.  Technology has come full circle and can now allow for the restoration of native fisheries despite in-river barriers.   

Whooshh believes in collaboration and seeks to work with tribal organizations in financing projects, navigating regulations and carrying out policy advocacy – all toward the goal of reversing the decline in migratory species more quickly.      

Fisheries Management

Many areas of fisheries management involve inexact science.  Estimates and extrapolations often form the basis for important fisheries decisions.  Innovation is needed to produce better data, make informed decisions and turn the tide of declining fish stocks. Whooshh seeks to partner with fisheries managers toward the common goal of restoration.  Technology has advanced to where it can bring several benefits to fisheries, but we need partners to continue evolving the needs and processes that bring about game-changing developments that can allow for the restoration of fish species around the globe.

               Whooshh believes in collaboration and seeks fisheries management partners to promote recovery projects, share and develop data, and carry out studies – all toward the goal of reversing the decline in migratory species.
