At AWEC 2019 for the first time, EnerKíte has shown the stable control of a kite rotating at long tethers for launch and landing. It is a significant milestone and proof of our unique approach and design choices. We have accomplished about 5000 landings and launchings in 500 hours of testing in the field. As a result, we have received tremendous feedback from our industry partners, academia, and even from competitors.

EnerKite and our proposal „AWESOME“ are one of the winners of the H2020 SME instrument call. The Grant agreement with the EU Commission was signed a few days ago.  Awesome stands for: "Airborne Wind Energy and Storage system for Off-grid and Mobile Electricity“ 

With a funding rate of 70%, EnerKíte will receive a € 2.3 Mio grant for our innovation and product development. This will allow to boost our performance from early 2019 on during the next years and to secure new resources for a long-lasting success.

At the start of this year, EnerKíte submitted a proposal for Small and Medium Enterprises under the H2020 SME instrument phase 2 framework. With a budget of 3.2 EURm, the project outlined the path to bringing our first product EK200 close to market. Work packages focused on technology maturation, pilot projects, market preparation and commercialisation. Year by year, the EU Commission has been progressively increasing the criteria – from 12, now 13 out of 15 points are required to be preselected out of thousands of applications. EnerKíte and its project AWESOME was one of the few companies to hit these thresholds. Unfortunately, 13,1 points - our highest score so far - was not good enough to be amongst one of around a dozen winners. The "Seal of Excellence" that was award to EnerKíte and the proposal, is however a win and success on its own - paving the path to local funding. The valuation of the international jury of experts was: "This proposal was scored as a high-quality project proposal in a highly competitive evaluation process." The federal state government recently issued a new funding scheme which offers even more attractive funding rates than the EU. We are drafting the winning proposal now. We are prepared.
