As a first of its kind, Kitekraft connected its test site to Germany's public electricity grid. This marks a crucial step towards the commercialization of Kitekraft's flying wind turbine technology.
Kitekraft enters into a new phase towards building commercially available flying wind turbines as we are excited to present our new, fully integrated prototype, bringing together kite and ground station. With this our focus shifts from the conceptual development towards improving reliability and efficiency instead.
Kitekraft, the Munich-based renewable energy startup building flying wind turbines, has raised $1.6 million to continue its development towards a first pilot installation.
We are thrilled to announce that we have reached a major milestone in our development towards our first 100kW product with a successful flight in all phases. The flight was fully autonomous apart from giving high level commands to launch and land.
