Altaeros Energies - Airborne Wind Turbine
Altaeros Energies - Airborne Wind Turbine

Altaeros is making offshore wind energy cost competitive with fossil fuels through a patent-pending airborne wind turbine based on proven aerospace and wind technology. Using a helium-filled shroud adapted from the surveillance and telecom sectors, the Altaeros turbine safely harnesses the immense, untapped potential of high-altitude winds at utility scale. A stronger wind resource and lower costs per turbine will allow Altaeros to reduce the levelized cost of offshore wind energy by 60%.
