Generate electricity from slow-moving water

A new technology called VIVACE (Vortex Induced Vibrations for Aquatic Clean Energy) being tested by the University of Michigan can generate power from slow-moving water

When water hits the leading edge of a cylinder it forms a vortex behind, which moves the next cylinder. These whirlpools in turn swirl the cylinders that are connected to turbines that create electricity from the movement.
