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.
E-Motors Consulting, LLC, our partner in the development of ultra low-head hydropower technologies, is featured in DOE’s announcement with EERE’s small business funding support of $ 9.1M for clean energy innovations. The Phase I STTR team involves UW-Milwaukee and our proposal received support letters from The Water Council, MidWest Energy Research Consortium, Synchrotek, America’s Energy Services, Oak […]

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. […]
