The emerging airborne wind sector continues to grow as small companies around the globe edge closer to commercialising innovative technologies. Boston-based Altaeros is set to demonstrate its technology in Alaska in 2015. The US$ 1.3 million demonstration is partially financed by the Alaska Energy Authority and will run for 18 months. The project is currently being permitted for a site south of Fairbanks. Throughout the winter of 2012, the Altaeros team demonstrated its BAT Concept Prototype in Maine.
