For the first time, a cross-border permit-to-fly was issued to an AWE company.

 Big advancement for AirborneWindEnergy in terms of regulation and permitting.

Kitepower could use its permit as an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) from ūüá≥ūüáĪ to be approved by the Irish Aviation Authority for operation at the Mayo County Council test site.

This breakthrough shows that the European drone regulation benefits the AWE sector by harmonising permitting across all Member States.

Wind Europe Annual Meeting

As a member of WindEurope, our Organization Manager, Stefanie Thoms, attended the #WindEurope2023 reception and the Conference at BellaCenter in Copenhagen this week to show AWE commitment in order to deploy wind energy as a game-changer that allows untapped wind resources to be harnessed at high altitudes up to 600 m.

Airborne Wind Europe supports the need to speed up the build-out of onshore and offshore wind to strengthen Europe‚Äôs energy security and ensure affordable electricity prices for Europe‚Äôs consumers.

“United Europe e.V.¬†Panel Discussion and Networking”¬†in Berlin

A crucial moment for EU Institutions and citizens next year where AWE is ready to achieve the REpowerEU deliverables in order to get NetZero emissions.

International Conference on Solar Technologies and HybridMiniGrids to improve energy access in Spain

It was organised in Universitat de les Illes Balears.

Our Secretary General, Kristian Petrick, presented an Airborne Wind Energy overview focusing on the advantages of tapping into unexploited wind resources at high altitudes while reducing the need for material. Also, our competitiveness in markets with diesel-based power generation like islands.

Thanks everyone for the nice presentations, great locations and well organised events. Looking forward to continue collaborating on behalf of Airborne Wind Energy.
