We develop a 100 kW high altitude wind energy generator
We develop innovative energy technologies, harnessing altitude winds driven by Italian ingenuity, creativity and passion.
The key idea of Kitenergy is to harvest high-altitude wind energy with minimal effort in terms of generator structure, costs and land occupation. In actual wind towers, the outermost 30% of the blade surface contributes to about 80% of the total generated power. We, therefore, decided to remove all the heavy and static structures of a wind tower, keeping only the outer part of the blades. This gave us a much lighter wing, able to fly extremely fast in crosswind conditions, connected to the ground and capable of generating energy in a significantly more efficient and effective way.
We aim to bring to market airborne wind energy generators, contribute to decarbonization and make it greener islands, remote areas and some of the harsh environments of the planet.
