Airborne Wind Energy

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 are developing a most efficient airborne wind energy technology, generating dispatchable green electricity, on-site of demand.
Our goal is a world with 100% renewables. Therefore, EnerKítes represent a very cost-effective 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. Solar panels do not deliver electricity at night. The gap between demand and generation is still compensated by fossil fuels. Massive enhancements of storage systems and the electrical grid will raise the costs further.


At higher altitudes, the wind blows stronger and more persistent. EnerKites reveal a unique potential to benefit from these high altitude winds. They harness twice as much energy and save 95 % of the material compared to classical wind turbines at the same power rating. The gap between generation and demand decreases. With less than 3 cents per kilowatt-hour electricity from prospective EnerKíte plants will become cheaper than 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. 

In the power range of 100 – 500 kW there is a nearly unsatisfied demand for decentralized green energy. In most cases a diesel genset remains the only choice today. With EnerKíte units mining companies, farmers and communities can supply themselves without the need for subsidies. As a self-sufficient solutions for generation and storage EnerKíte units enable stand-alone superchargers for electromobility in rural areas. The portable units deliver cost-effective and clean electricity for disaster relief and in remote areas.

Our entry product EK200 finds high-altitude winds at 80% of the landmass, sufficient to represent a highly competitive alternative to wind turbines, PV and Diesel. With EnerKíte the onshore and offshore wind power opportunity increases about the factor of two to four.
