Open new markets for wind power and greatly reduce its cost and environmental footprint.
The world needs to expand the clean energy mix with more sustainable technologies in order to accelerate the move towards a net-zero economy and reduce the environmental foot print of energy production.
Airborne Wind Energy Systems (AWES) is a game changer technology with the potential to greatly reduce cost and open new markets for wind power. We use a fully automatic aircraft to capture the energy from strong winds at 500m altitude.
Our clients are utility companies, power project developers and oil majors trying to move towards clean energy.
Higher energy yield than wind turbines, more versatile and easier to install, with lower cost, 70-80% less material use and lower land use, lower visual and noise impact.
