EnerKíte was awarded the Efficient Solution Label of the Solar Impulse Foundation as one of about 600 sustainable innovations worldwide. This confirms that the EnerKíte EK200 system under development promises an excellent balance between profitability and sustainability.

Independent experts examined our prospective product in detail according to five criteria in a standardized process. The main criteria are feasibility, environment and profitability as well as compatibility with the United Nations' sustainable development goals. EnerKíte plants not only contribute to an affordable and clean energy supply, but also implement the sustainability goals in the area of resource efficiency. In application scenarios, as part of an integrated solution, they enable a clean water supply, reduce expenses in the area of charging infrastructure and help communities in rural areas to create local added value by supplying green electricity themselves.

About the Solar Impulse Foundation

The Solar Impulse Foundation was founded by solar plane pioneer Bertrand Piccard after he circumnavigated the world in his solar plane. Piccard wants to network leading players from industry, politics and finance and urge governments to adopt a more ambitious energy policy with ambitious environmental goals.

Decision-makers in industry and politics will be presented with the 1000 Solutions to convince them that the future belongs to technological innovations that are both economical and environmentally friendly.

What else do a solar airplane and an EnerKíte have in common?

On EnerKíte, the shine of success is not only coloured by the Efficient Solution Label. We are directly linked by technological innovation, because the chief engineer of Bertrand Piccard's Solar Impulse Project was also involved in the development of the ultra-light EnerKíte wing. With the Solar Impulse airplane Piccard has also crossed technological boundaries. In the twelve years between the start of the project and the round-the-world flight in 2016, he spared neither expense nor trouble in making the impossible possible. Like Solar Impulse, it is not just a radiant vision, but a team of movers and shakers who will not be discouraged until success is achieved.
