Kite power game-changer

Kite power game-changer

This large kite generates green energy from the wind, connected with a cable on the ground

Enevate developed a game-changer in the wind energy sector: Kite power energy

This is great Airborne Wind Energy. The kite power is a cost-effective alternative to existing wind-power turbines.

The patented technology uses 90% less material while being twice as efficient as existing technologies.

Kite Power reality by Roosegaarde

Kite Power reality by Roosegaarde

During reel-out, the kite is flying figure-eight maneuvers at high speed (70 to 90 km/h). This creates a high traction force (3.1 kN at 7 m/s wind speed) which is converted into electricity by the drum and the connected 20 kW generator.

Kite Power by harnessing high altitude wind next step in Dutch Icon project ‘Afsluitdijk’. 

Even NASA has started to work on airborne wind energy. This field is very new and has much room for innovation.

Flight testing with actual consistent measured power production is the next step.

That’s why art-innovator Daan Roosegaarde is going to install and light the kites at the Afsluitdijk in the Netherlands. Read More
