About

Skypull is developing an airborne wind energy system with ground-based generator. With 95% less materials than used for building wind turbines, but with double their production capacity it will produce renewable energy at lowest cost… lower than from fossil fuels! The Skypull fully autonomous hybrid drone is capable of vertical take-off and landing and flies like a kite in more powerful winds at higher altitudes, pulling on a tether connected to the generator to generate electricity. A reduced scale prototype is already operational and further development incorporates scalability of production, to allow acceleration of the buildup of affordable renewable energy for combatting climate change.
