Taking windpower
to new heights

The future of green energy is found high up in the skies

Airborne wind energy can be harnessedabove 350 meters, far higher than conventional wind turbines, at heights wherethe winds are stronger and more consistent.

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

Based in Voss, Norway since 2008 – Kitemill is a world leading company in developing groundbreaking airborne wind energy technology. Our technology has the potential of completely changing the way we utilize wind power today.

The Solution

Kitemill’s solution consists of a kite connected by a tether to a ground based generator. Just like normal kites behave on windy days, the kites pull the tether from the winch generator at the ground station while it flies in a helical pattern in the wind direction.

Kitemills technology:

  • needs less than 10% of the material usage of conventional wind turbines of same capacity

  • ensures stable energy output thanks to a high-capacity factor

  • unlock more potential wind sites thanks to harvesting wind at high altitudes

  • indicative twice the energy density per ground area of solar and five times of conventional wind

  • entails minimal interference in the surrounding environments both in construction, and operation

  • has less investment tied up to the site and can be relocated during its lifespan

  • is barely visible from the ground
