The Front Cover

TwingTec is currently working on new wind energy technology. The concept relies on a tethered wing which flies like a kite. This  enables access to winds at higher altitudes. Just recently A first prototype has been built and tested. A product concept for a 100kW mobile wind energy system has been developed which addresses the needs of the off-grid market.
