How it works

1. In the work phase the kite pulls the rope from the drum of a winch

2. A generator inside the drum converts the rotatory power to electricity

3. In the rewind phase the autopilot steers the kite into a force neutral position – the generator now acts as a motor and reels back the rope, consuming only 4% of the energy generated in the work phase – the excess energy is fed into the grid and the power production cycle starts again
