HQ Country
Enable wind energy in remote and off-grid areas, reducing diesel consumption and environmental impact. Big ideas take hard work, capital and above all a willingness to take risks. We are convinced that TwingPower is going to play an important part in the future energy supply. With a first product, aimed at the off-grid power supply market, we will demonstrate that this technology is commercially viable and build on this success to achieve a global impact.
Our System
The TT100, the world's first containerized mobile wind energy system. It is based on a tethered drone making electricity from the stronger winds high up by driving a generator on the ground.

SwissKitePower Project Switzerland

The SwissKitePower project is a multidisciplinary research and development effort aimed at creating a totally new device which can harness wind energy at high altitudes. The winds at altitude are stronger and more consistent than those at the ground and represent an enormous potential source of renewable energy.

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).

Four marvels promised by high power energy harvesting

Free fuel for vehicles without them stopping. Replacement of millions of diesel electricity generators with something using free energy and totally clean. Buildings disconnecting from the grid in order to reduce costs and power cuts. 1.1 billion people without electricity will get it for little or no cost. Unbelievable? They are now the focus of serious development and demonstrations and the common factor is "high power energy harvesting (HPEH)".

Airborne Wind Energy Conference Netherlands 15-16 June Part One

This is the leading event on this subject: it moves around the world. AWE is the generation of electricity by flying devices in the wind, whether tethered or untethered. Almost all such projects involve tethered devices, over 30 being kites. Some are tethered aircraft that can take off and land themselves
