Airborne Wind Europe and its members took the opportunity to present Airborne Wind Energy at the world’s largest wind fair and conference, WinEnergy Hamburg fair in September 2018 to the wind energy industry.

1. Booth 

Airborne Wind Europe and its members had a highly frequented booth at WindEnergy Hamburg 2018 (25-28 September 2018). Over 1000 visitors have taken the time to visit our booth and get in touch with us and the exhibits.

It was an excellent opportunity for many wind energy experts from utilities, developers, wind turbine manufacturers to get first-hand information on the principles of airborne wind energy, the status and plans of our member companies and to discuss opportunities for collaborations with our industry.
