Kite Gen

Projects that are pioneering the production of clean energy from wind and to reduce our dependancy on fossil fuels

The father of KitVes and founded in 2007, Kite Gen is a brand for the new wind generation technology created by Kite Gen Research.

The technology uses the powerful altitude wind of the troposphere as an energy source, channelled through arrays of large tethered power kites cruising at an altitude of 800 / 1 000 m, whose movements are electronically controlled by highly sophisticated sensors and proprietary software.

The power kites are anchored to a revolving structure on a vertical axis at ground level, which conveys the energy thus generated.
