The Hibernian Airborne Wind Energy Kites (HAWK) is a project funded by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and partnered by CTL Tástáil Teo and the University of Galway. Also featuring contributions from project collaborators like Zero Nexus, TU Delft and Airborne Wind Europe.
The keys of the project are:
- Developing a techno-economic analysis model supported by data for candidate materials suited to Airborne Wind Energy (AWE).
- Determining key challenges and barriers for Airborne Wind Energy system developers in predicting the capital and operating costs of composite airframe structures.
- Analysing the main wing component for long-term performance using the material test data.
