AIRBORNE WIND ENERGY

KITEMILL develops a breakthrough wind technology based on stronger and more consistent winds at higher altitudes (500 – 1500 meters).


Airborne wind energy reduces the levelized cost of energy with 50% due to 90% less material usage combined with an increased energy yield.


Furthermore, the geographical market increases as airborne wind energy is less sensitive to wind conditions close to the ground.
