A total shift to renewable energy is among humanity’s greatest challenges. In this global energy transition, wind power plays a crucial role. It is one of the most cost-efficient, abundant and environmentally friendly energy sources. But conventional wind technology is unable to exploit this resource where it is most potent: at high altitudes. Now, we offer an airborne system that revolutionizes how the wind is harnessed and converted into electricity. We believe it is the key that will unlock 100% renewables around the clock.
Automatic power kites are at our vision’s core. They can harness the wind’s untapped supplies at altitudes of up to 400 meters, and we were the first company in the world to develop an industrial application. Now, our solution is ready for scale-up. SkySails kites are lightweight and highly efficient and will profoundly alter wind energy’s impact in achieving the global energy transition.
We are the first company in the world with Airborne Wind Energy Systems that are ready to order. Thanks to its unique advantages, our renewable energy alternative can even compete with conventional solutions in supplying baseload power.
SkySails is driven by the common goal to make the world more sustainable. Everybody in our team plays a central role in realizing this and over the years, we have grown to over 90 people. Sounds interesting? Join us and help reshape the future!
We have a passion for wind power and want to accelerate the global energy transition. Our experience stems from 20 years of developing and operating automatic kite systems. Together, we deliver Green Technology that’s Made in Germany.
