Wind Energy Redefined17.Sep.2012:
World premiere – EnerKite airborne wind energy converter at the Husum WindEnergy Fair 2012
The EnerKite GmbH will be at the Husum Wind Energy Fair from September 18th – 22nd 2012 and will be presenting the technology of harnessing strong and steady winds at higher altitudes to the public for the very first time.
As a longtime partner of EnerKite GmbH, Flysurfer Kiteboarding is supporting the project EnerKite with specially developed Kites.
The mobile 30kW EnerKíte airborne wind energy converter maneuvers a 15 m2 large Wing (Kite) up into altitudes of 200m – above the tips of newly repowered 3 MW turbines. The automated flight modes and energy generation will be demonstrated. The force of the wind, acting on a kite which is flying transversely to the wind, is converted into electrical energy by a cyclically extending tether rope.
In the future the EnerKites can make a substantial contribution to the regenerative energy supply. An autonomous operation including launch and landing and the most cost-effective solution of the use of wind energy are the goals of a sophisticated development that has successfully begun with the 30kW demonstration plant.
Further milestones are a small wind power plant with scalable technology for the decentralized energy supply at grid parity to end-user in 2014 and a plant of the MW-class system with grid parity in 2017.
To realize these goals, EnerKite is promoting at the exhibition in Husum to seek financial and political support.
You can marvel and experience the EnerKite airborne wind energy converter at the Husum Wind Energy Fair from September 18th – 22nd 2012.
