Project: High Altitude Mobile Wind Energy with Tethered Wings

Acronym TwingPower (Reference Number: 11105)
Duration 01/04/2017
Project Topic TwingPower is a mobile wind energy technology which uses a tethered wing or Twing to access stronger winds at higher altitudes. The consortium will design, build and test a prototype system consisting of a Twing, a winch and an energy storage and microgrid integration unit, or microgrid. The results of the project will prove that this novel approach to wind energy is ready for commercialization.
