The 9th International Airborne Wind Energy Conference (AWEC 2021) will be held on 1-3 September 2021 at the Politecnico Milano

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. The largest AWE demonstrator system reached so far was a 600 kW system; many other demonstrator systems exist in the electricity output range up to 80 kW.
The 8th Airborne Wind Energy Conference (AWEC 2019) was held on 15-16 October 2019 in Glasgow, United Kingdom. Altogether, more than 220 delegates from 21 countries across Europe and abroad, scientists and engineers, entrepreneurs and investors gathered to share their experiences, findings, opportunities and visions for airborne wind energy.

The program of the AWEC 2021 will include
  • plenary talks by selected experts from international agencies, industry and academia, and
  • contributed talk sessions in two parallel tracks, and
  • panel discussions covering all aspects of airborne wind energy, and
  • poster sessions, preceded by plenary spotlight presentations.
We will see fascinating documentations of industrial developments, ongoing research projects and engaging panel discussions about key themes for the commercialization of the technology. In addition to the learning component, the conference will also be the perfect opportunity to network within the emerging community.

See you at AWEC 2021!
