Airborne Wind Energy Conference5-6 October 2017
The 7th International Airborne Wind Energy Conference will be held on 5-6 October 2017 at the Albert-Ludwigs University Freiburg, Germany. AWEC 2017 is co-organized by the university together with the EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training Network AWESCO and the Sustainability Center Freiburg.
International Airborne Wind Energy Conferences have been held in Chico, CA, USA in 2009, in Stanford, CA, USA in 2010, in Leuven, Belgium in 2011, in Hampton, VA, USA in 2012, in Berlin, Germany in 2013 and in Delft, The Netherlands in 2015. The recent AWEC conferences had each about 250 participants.
Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) is an emerging renewable energy technology that aims to replace the use of fossil fuels for energy production on an economical basis. A characteristic feature of the various AWE concepts is the use of tethered flying devices to access wind energy at higher altitudes where the wind is more consistent. Over the past decade the AWE scientific and industrial community has grown considerably.
