Ampyx Power is a pioneering technology start-up company that is at the forefront of Airborne Wind Energy. Ampyx is developing the PowerPlane, a machine that can extract energy from the wind much more economically than wind turbines.
Joby Energy is developing airborne wind turbines to harness the immense and consistent power in high-altitude winds to offer a reliable, low-cost technology for producing renewable energy.
Magenn Power's high altitude wind turbine called MARS is a Wind Power Anywhere™ solution with distinct advantages over existing Conventional Wind Turbines and Diesel Generating Systems including: global deployment, lower costs, better operational performance, and greater environmental advantages.
Makani Power is seeking to harness high-altitude wind energy to produce energy at an unsubsidized real cost significantly below that of the least expensive coal-fired power plants, the current benchmark of the lowest cost source of power.
Sky WindPower Corporation is developing Flying Electric Generators to enable conversion of the vast, persistent energy in high altitude winds into abundant clean power. These rotorcraft rise like helicopters to where sufficient wind enables their seamless transition to riding on the wind and acting as windmills to generate electricity.

Kitenergy is a radical innovation in wind energy generation to provide large quantities of renewable energy at lower cost than fossil sources. The technology exploits the powerful high-altitude wind of the troposphere and convert it into electricity by means of power kites. Two hi-tech cables link the kite to the generator placed on the ground where electrical power is generated.
