Airborne Wind Energy System for Off-grid and Mobile End-uses

Project description

More power from higher altitudes

Wind is a strategic industrial sector in delivering the European Green Deal. However, today’s electricity from wind turbines is volatile and fully available only at stronger winds. The EU-funded AWESOME project has the potential to fast-forward technology progress to boost wind energy. It is developing technology to generate dispatchable green electricity on-site of demand by harnessing wind at higher altitudes where it blows stronger and more persistently. The project’s future product portfolio of Airborne Wind Energy Systems will harness the powerful winds high above the blade tips of today’s wind turbines. This will double the output but cut cost by half, shrinking the gap between generation and demand. Also, portable units can power remote areas.
