Expanding the sustainable energy supply with scalable airborne wind innovation.
Our planet’s survival depends on a sustainable energy future. Existing technologies create progress towards this goal, but to accelerate the energy transition we must unlock additional sustainable energy such as from wind power at high altitudes. The Ampyx Power Airborne Wind Energy System (AWES) with a tethered aircraft accesses the higher and more powerful winds above 200 m, requiring much less material to construct, smaller foundation, and infrastructure. AWES has huge potential to be a very cost-effective way to harvesting wind energy by increasing the usability of deployment sites for off-shore re-powering, deep off-shore and remote on-shore. By developing innovative, elegant and material-reducing solutions, Ampyx Power is leading the way in meeting tomorrow’s energy demands.
