Joby Energy is developing airborne wind turbines to harness high-altitude winds

Abstract:
Joby Energy is developing airborne wind turbines to harness high-altitude winds. Our technology will offer a solution to meet the growing, global demand for clean and low-cost energy. Operating at altitudes where winds are considerably more consistent and powerful than surface-based winds, our system will produce twice the energy for the same rated power as surface-based turbines. And compared to a surface-based wind turbine with the same rated power, our capital costs are considerably lower as our systems require approximately 1/40 the materials to build. Lastly, our system will achieve a net capacity factor of approximately 70% resulting in a levelized cost of energy (LCOE) competitive with coal.
