KGM1 (name of the project managed by with the GHIVA Prog. CAD)


Research project in the sector of "​ Airborne Wind Energy"​ (AWE), belonging to the type "ground-gen"​, operating through a linear generator operating at costant height. The KGM1 initiative aims to draw a new path in the AWE sector, with a first off-grid generator of small size, which will propose solutions for the remote off-grid communities. These conceps should afterwards be implemented on an advanced on-grid bigger version. The high altitude wind sector, to finally go into mass production, more than ever needs simple and effective solutions,​ and KGM1 could have identified (and patented) efficient solutions while steering clear of the "hyper-technology syndrome"​, which leads to frequent maintenance intervals, failures risk, difficult insurability and an exponential increase of the "complexity”.
