Profile
Kitepower is a leading start-up in Airborne Wind Energy. We develop innovative and 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. Kitepower systems use high-performance kites for cost-competitive electricity generation. Unlike conventional wind turbines, the Kitepower system does not require resource intensive towers or heavy foundations and is thus highly mobile and easy to deploy. Being able to harness stronger and more persistent winds at higher altitudes allows for capacity factors higher than 0.5 and in return cost-effective electricity generation.

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.
