Airborne Wind Energy Projects
Maturing utility-scale Airborne Wind Energy towards commercialization
The MegaAWE project is led by Mayo County Council across Ireland, Europe and the UK. The test site is based in Bangor Erris, County Mayo on land leased from Bord Na Mona. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The overall objective of the project is to bring large scale multi megawatt Airborne Wind Energy systems closer to the market, unlocking new locations for wind energy production including remote onshore and floating offshore applications in Northwest Europe and beyond.
Just and effective governance for accelerating wind energy
JustWind4All, a Horizon Europe project, aims to support the acceleration of on- and offshore wind energy, including emerging wind technologies like airborne and floating, through just and effective governance. By using a trans-disciplinary multi-method research design, it creates synergies among people and organisations to coordinate and participate in actions around wind energy deployment. Moreover, it aims to develop knowledge, practical guidelines, instruments, strategies, and trainings for just and effective decision-making in onshore and offshore wind energy governance. One of the key activities of JustWind4All project is engaging with local, regional, national and EU wind energy governance actors across policy, community and industry through its Wind Forum – a platform designed to meet, network, discuss and go into action.
Multiscale modelling for wind farm design, performance assessment and loading
The new Horizon Europe project Meridional brings together a consortium of twelve European partners led by Delft University of Technology with the aim to develop a tool chain to increase accuracy in energy yield assessment and loads for both wind turbines and airborne wind energy systems.
Meridional stands for “multiscale modelling for wind farm design, performance assessment and loading”. Over the next four years the partners will work on a comprehensively validated framework based on an open-source platform which will draw on an integrated knowledge and data hub to allow the efficient and accurate assessment of the performance and loads experienced by onshore, offshore, and airborne wind energy systems.
Task 48 provides a platform for the open exchange of ideas, experience, and techniques of AWE
Started in 2021 Task 48 aims to build a strong community that works together to identify and mitigate the barriers to the development and deployment of airborne wind energy systems. We provide a structured forum for international collaborations between researchers, supply chains, and users to exchange needs, ideas, and experiences.
