About us

We imagined a way to produce clean energy from an untapped renewable source, with a lean and capital-efficient technology that generates electricity at a cost potentially cheaper than fossil fuels. And we designed our devices to bring this technology wherever there is a need for electrification or decarbonization, even where other renewable energy technologies are not affordable or competitive.

We are Kitenergy, an Italian startup founded in 2010 and proudly committed to transform the visionary invention of generating energy from high altitude wind into reality.
After years of experimental testing, our small scale mobile prototype performs in line with our technology roadmap and is raising interest among stakeholders and potential customers.

We are of a group of professionals ranging from a variety of disciplines including engineering, physics, mechanics, environmental science, management consulting and finance working together on the development of high altitude wind technologies since 2006, in collaboration with the Complex Systems Modeling & Control group of Politecnico di Torino and selected high-tech engineering firms.

Our team is recognized at international level as pioneer in this field and has been granted several top-level innovation awards from ENI, IEEE and is a founder and member of the Airborne Wind Energy Consortium. Kitenergy received initial scientific and seed financing support from Regione Piemonte, the Italian Ministry of Research and the European Union.
In 2017 Kitenergy won the Expo Live Innovation Impact Programme – Dubai Expo2020 and has been awarded of a Certificate of Appreciation “Our common future: Energy, Environment & Development” Expo 2017 Astana (Kazakhstan).
