Policies for Airborne Wind Energy – Scoping Study – January 2018

Airborne Wind Europe prepared a policy scoping study in 2018. Its aim was to assess the relevance of policy changes required for the success of Airborne Wind Energy as well as possible means to achieve such policy changes.

High Altitude Wind Maps of Europe

Airborne wind energy systems can harvest winds at 500 meters and even higher altitude. Airborne Wind Europe presents the first wind maps for such altitudes based on ERA5 wind data

Study on challenges in the commercialisation of airborne wind energy systems

Airborne wind energy systems (AWES) is the umbrella name for a series of potentially game-changing concepts to convert wind energy into electricity. This study provides an overview of the technological state of the art, assesses market potential and barriers, and outlines measures and a pathway towards commercialisation,by  Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (European Commission) , ECORYS.
