A € 12 million project has been approved for a 3-Year air borne wind energy project. The project is centred round the development of an airborne wind test site at Bangor Erris in North Mayo Ireland.
The project is led by Mayo County Council working in partnership with RWE, Ampyx Power, Airborne Wind Europe and other organisations across Ireland, Europe and the UK. Funding for the project has been secured from Interreg North West Europe to validate the effectiveness of air borne wind energy technology at a scalable commercial level, to accelerate the integration of the various systems and to test the endurance of the technology in real time under real world conditions.
