Airborne Wind Europe encourages high-level discussions on generation of energy from high-altitude winds by means of kite energy systems, wind drones and other airborne wind energy systems and encourages research, innovation and exchange of technical information among entrepreneurs, suppliers, utilities, developers, energy consumers, equipment manufacturers, financial institutions and universities
Airborne Wind Europe promotes the generation of energy from high altitude winds by means of airborne wind energy systems. It represents the interests of the airborne wind energy industry as well as academia to decision makers in politics and business, provides reliable and high-quality information and data on airborne wind energy and is coordinating the industry at all levels.
The following working groups of Airborne Wind Europe have been established:
Objective: Address all safety related aspects of the AWE system components (kite, tether, ground station), operations, noise emissions, power curves and other issues that shall be described in technical guidelines. The Working Group will also define ways on how to efficiently conduct the permitting process in cooperation with airspace authorities.
In April 2020 the AWEurope members agreed upon the Key Safety Principles.
Objective: Defining a roadmap for the European AWE sector and develop a storyline for the AWE sector to communicate a consistent picture towards policy makers, investors, clients, media, public, and other stakeholders. The first results of the WG were presented at the AWEC 2019.
Currently the WG works on the definition of milestones to be achieved by the sector.
Objective: Investigate issues and potential solutions or mitigation measures for AWE impacts on birds and other wildlife, visual impact, noise, public acceptance, community participation /consultation, etc. We will gather available studies on these issues and elaborate best-practice approaches.
