EnerKíte GmbH from Germany has developed a novel technology to harness the stronger and steadier winds at higher altitudes. At average to fair onshore wind conditions the kite-based wind power plants allow for capacity factors way above 70% while aiming to keep the cost of electricity below 5 euro-cents per kilowatt-hour. The image on the cover shows the demonstrator EnerKíte in use, showing how it can reach heights greater than conventional turbines. Click here to read the full article.
