We bring the next generation of renewables to the market

Harnessing persistent high-altitude winds: Doubling the output, cutting cost by half, resource-efficient and economical worldwide.

We at EnerKíte are developing, most efficient airborne wind energy technology, capable of generating distributed, dispatchable green electricity, on-site and at the size of the demand.
Our ambition is a world with 100% renewables. Therefore, EnerKítes represents a very economical and reliable alternative to diesel and coal.

Our Solution - Base Load Capable Renewable Energy

Today’s electricity from Wind turbines is volatile and fully available only at stronger winds. PV panels deliver electricity only during the day and if there are no clouds. The gap between demand and renewable generation needs to be compensated by fossil fuels or by massive enhancements of the storage systems or the grid.

At higher altitudes, the wind blows stronger and more persistent.
30% more Wind speed equals 100% more power. EnerKites reveal a unique potential to benefit from high altitude winds. They harness twice as much energy as the wind turbines and save 95% of the material at the same power rating.
The gap between generation and demand reduces and with less than 3 cents per kilowatt-hour of electricity from wind will become cheaper than from coal.

We expand the wind power opportunity and create new markets

Almost every country in this world could be powered by wind energy many times over. Today only 4 % of the global electricity comes from wind. 
Twenty times the opportunity: Small wind turbines are competitive at only 2% of the global landmass. However, at about 100 – 500 kW there is a massive and unsatisfied demand for decentralized green energy. 
With EnerKíte units mining companies, operators of charging stations, farmers, enterprises, and communities can supply themselves without the need for subsidies. The portable units can serve for disaster relief and in remote areas with sustainable and clean electricity.
The entry product EK200 finds sufficient high-altitude winds at 80% of the landmass to represent a highly competitive alternative to wind turbines, PV and Diesel.
In the MW class, EnerKítes doubles the onshore wind power opportunity, offshore the potential increases about the factor of three to four.
