Energy is the greatest world issue. High Altitude Wind is the greatest renewable resource. KiteGen merely links them.
The two concepts are the KiteGen Carousel ( a GW class generator) and The KiteGen Stem, the latter is a pumping Kite concept.
KiteGen spent the last 10 years coordinating and licensing research activities in order to accumulate the notions and the full confidence to proceed with the industrialisation. KiteGen during the activity involved several hundred researchers, students, professionals, and companies. Thanks to the KiteGen early dissemination dozens of initiatives arisen in the specific domain. Two years ago KiteGen successfully closed the research activity having answered to all open issues and completed the design of the KG Stem full-scale product.
The advantages, both technical and economic, of exploiting high winds are most undisclosed yet, It is needed a big effort of dissemination and promotion in order to pave the way to the ignition investments toward this foreseeable big industry. With the highest confidence, no theoretical, technological, economic and environmental barriers are in sight. The unprecedented disruptive nature of the energy sector that this technology offers is in condition to rapidly shift most of the paradigm about: energy subsidies, economic growth, clean water, pollution, transport, and welfare.
