Airborne Wind Energy features prominently in UN report on emerging energy tech
A recent United Nations paper on emerging climate technologies in the energy supply sector gave considerable consideration to airborne wind. The paper demonstrated a thorough understanding of airborne technology, clearly outlining the key benefits and downsides in comparison to other energy systems in over 60 references.
The technical paper, which provides an “overview of the technologies, their state of play, and potential climate change mitigation and adaptation impacts” was developed with the contribution of the Government of Japan.
This coverage follow the US Department of Energy’s November 2021 report to Congress on airborne wind energy and the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s August 2021 study of the sector.
