Kitepower: Pioneering kite-designed, airborne wind energy system can reduce the cost of wind energy

Netherlands-based startup Kitepower has developed an airborne wind energy system which uses 90% less material than wind turbines and can significantly reduce the cost of wind energy. Unlike conventional wind turbines, the Kitepower system does not require resource-intensive towers or heavy foundations and is thus easy to transport and deploy. The system, whose design follows that of a recreational kite, is able to harness stronger … Continue reading Kitepower: Pioneering kite-designed, airborne wind energy system can reduce the cost of wind energy
