Cadens is a pioneer in the field of micro- to small-hydropower, particularly in the development of Near Net Shape (NNS) technology to turbine design and production. Cadens has developed a low-head hydropower research facility in southeast WI to test and develop site-specific turbine systems. We are applying CAD-driven, additive manufacturing and modern power electronics to create innovative hydropower technologies that will significantly reduce the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for hydropower.
Request for Information: Challenges and Opportunities for Sustainable Development of Hydropower in Undeveloped Stream Reaches of the United States. The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders on issues related to development of hydropower in new stream-reaches. EERE is specifically interested in information on […]

Cadens would like to congratulate Dr. Bruno Lequesne, E-Motors Consulting, LLC, on his DOE STTR award for very low-head hydropower technologies. Along with our partners at UW-Milwaukee, we look forward to continuing progress and expanding on our efforts to bring new hydropower technologies to market. By leveraging AM technology (additive manufacturing), Cadens is developing a rapid design […]
WUWM • 89.7 FM • Lake Effect, By SUSAN BENCE • MAR 17, 2016 The Mid-West Energy Research Consortium, or M-WERC, is working to add Milwaukee to the energy tech landscape. The group sprouted out of the interest of three universities and four industrial companies in 2009. With over 80 members, M-WERC made two giant leaps last year. […]
