AIRBORNE WIND ENERGY

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


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


Furthermore, our technology opens access to additional wind resources which substantially increases the geographical market for financially viable wind energy.
