Nautical Torque Technology develops innovative methods and equipment that produce continuous renewable electricity for the wholesale market. We seek to bring positive change to society by commercializing our technology, which will address the shortcomings of current renewable energy solutions and allow society to transition away from fossil fuel and nuclear-based electricity production.


We are a Clean Tech start up Based in San Francisco, California with renewable electricity patents known as Nautical Torque Technology (NTT). Our group of researchers, engineers and business development professionals are dedicated to playing a major role in transforming the global wholesale electricity market away from fossil and nuclear fuels in order to have a positive impact on communities and the environment worldwide.


San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge


Our top priority is the commercialization of NTT. By promoting our patents and the research we have done so far we can develop relationships with investors and stakeholders which will provide the resources and support to further refine our technologies. This will allow us to develop digital prototypes followed by scalable physical prototypes, all with an eye toward demonstrating the viability of our technology. Concurrent with this we will continually track global markets for pricing standards as well as the initial capital investment for building and maintenance costs for NTT. Taken together we anticipate this information will demonstrate a viable ROI for investors and a stable, reliable source of renewable electricity for the wholesale market.
