HQ Country
Kitemill is one of the leading airborne wind energy companies developing product to harvest wind from altitudes above conventional wind turbines limitation. Kitemill has a lean organization and strong industrial partners. The concept being developed is a kite turbine based on a rigid kite pulling a single tether of a regenerative ground based winch. It operates autonomously in production, start and landing. A commercial version is under development. Kitemill have since 2009 worked on regulation and permission and have today the first permanent approval by the Civil Aviation Authorities to operate commercial kite turbines 24/7 up to 3000 feet height.

Significance of Alphabet Exiting Giant Drones Including AWE

Significance of Alphabet Exiting Giant Drones Including Airborne Wind Energy. Alphabet/ Google and Facebook exiting large drones does not mean such aircraft are a failure. In Alphabet, a sister company of Google, was acquisition Makani in California and later Hawaii trialling a huge drone with eight propeller-generators and a 70 meter wingspan.

Energy Independent Electric Boats and Ships Lead the Way

There is more energy to harvest at sea. True, water craft have stronger resistance to overcome but on balance, it means that energy independent electric boats are more common than their equivalents on land or in the air and they have lessons for both.

Exotic new sources of free electricity: $50 billion market

High Power Energy Harvesting (HPEH) is a term beginning to be used for creation of electricity where it is needed using ambient "free" energy. That zero-pollution, high-energy conversion typically captures light (photovoltaics), heat difference (thermoelectrics and heat pumps) and movement (electrodynamics).

Kitemill Airborne Wind Energy advances

Airborne wind energy (AWE) systems harness the stronger winds above the biggest wind turbines on earth. They use a small fraction of the materials and are quieter and more easily moved and commissioned so they have great potential for both off and on-grid use.

Airborne Wind Energy Conference Netherlands 15-16 June Part Two

There is healthy disagreement among everyone concerning the optimal products, with some going to grid applications first then planning off-grid or, like Makani, looking only at on-grid.
