Join us in making the world a more sustainable one.
Kitekraft is developing advanced wind power systems: power-generating kites, a.k.a. flying wind turbines, that require 10x less construction material than a conventional wind turbine. A Kitekraft unit will generate electricity cleaner, almost invisible, and at least 50% cheaper than conventional wind turbine of the same power rating, and eventually cheaper than any other alternative. Kitekraft develops and will build, sell, and operate flying wind turbines in the 100kW to 5MW+ range, for both grid-scale energy production and off-grid applications.
Our mission is to help solving the climate and energy crisis. Today still 84% of primary energy comes from fossil fuels. All that has to be replaced with renewables. Electrification of most sectors is in full swing, additional capacities are required for production of e-fuels and hydrogen for transportation, especially shipping and flying, but also for CO2-neutral steel production and more. We have to at least 10x the current renewable energy capacities. Wind energy will be a backbone of this because of its scalability and availability over the globe. Our flying wind turbines will accelerate adoption and provide a major portion of this since it is cheaper, feasible at more locations, simpler to deploy & maintain, and being less visible.
We strongly believe that equality, inclusion, and respect towards all genders and all backgrounds no matter the sexual orientation, religion, and ethnicity is non-debatable. We welcome everyone who shares our vision and mutual respect to join our endeavor.
We have set the following codes of conduct for ourselves and our company to be a constant reminder that all of the above—equality, inclusion, respect—are not a given and that they have to be actively defended. Take a look at what that means to us in detail.
