This past December Nextek had the honor of hosting the Vice Mayor of Zhenjiang, China along with his staff. Just an hour west of Shanghai, Zhenjiang is hoping to be a hub of science, manufacturing and technology for the 21st century. Capitalizing on its infrastructure and logistics advantages, emerging industries, state-of-the-art facilities, industrial foundation, workforce education and research innovations, the National Zhenjiang Economic and Technological Development Zone is planning on luring corporations and new industries to the city.
Their visit to Nextek, the first stop on a tour throughout the United States, was based on their interest in renewable energy and DC microgrids. The NZETDZ is planning a DC microgrid project for the city in 2011.
