ADVANTAGES

STRONG HIGH WINDS

Kites operate dynamically and reach the strong and persistent winds in higher altitudes. The yearly energy yield of conventional wind turbines can be more than doubled.

LESS MATERIAL

No tower, no blades.
Kitepower systems use lightweight wings and flexible lines. This makes the systems highly mobile and easy to deploy and maintain.

LOWER COSTS

Stronger and more persistent winds combined with less material use add up to lower costs. Levelized costs of energy are potentially less than 1/4 compared to wind turbines.

SPACE EFFICIENCY

Smart controls enable automatic system operation. Synchronized systems in park configurations allow for higher power densities than state of the art wind parks.

SAFETY MECHANISMS

A special machanism allows to bring the kite down from the air like a parachute on a safety leash. The leightweight materials used benefit system safety.

LESS IMPACT

Kitepower systems are friendly to the environment. The kite flies in higher altitudes which makes the system silent and almost invisible.

ABOUT KITEPOWER

Kitepower is a leading start-up in airborne wind energy. We develop innovative cost-effective alternatives to existing wind turbines. Our patented technology is a game changer in the wind energy sector: it uses 90% less material while being twice as efficient as existing technology.

Unlike conventional wind turbines, the Kitepower system does not require resource intensive towers or heavy foundations and is thus remarkably mobile and easy to deploy. Kitepower systems use high-performance kites for cost-competitive electricity generation. Being able to harness stronger and more persistent winds at higher altitudes allows for capacity factors greater than 0.5 and in return cost-effective electricity generation. Our launching product, the e100, is especially suited for replacing diesel generator sets in remote locations in order to save costs and mitigate the dependency of diesel supply.
