Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd. will offer a new inverter to deliver power from small wind turbines to electricity grids through an agreement with the Japanese company Zephyr Corporation.
The first product application, developed by Zephyr, is the Airdolphin Mark-Zero. Sustainable Energy has agreed with Zephyr to adapt the company's Sunergy inverter platform for the Airdolphin turbine. The inverter incorporates recently developed proprietary software that enables it to operate in a grid-interactive mode with very high efficiencies, and to switch to battery-based mode for backup power during grid outages. Under its agreement with Zephyr, the Company has also acquired the right to bundle the Airdolphin with the new inverter product for distribution in Canada.
