On June 22-23 2012 the Kite Power Group from Delft University of Technology demonstrated fully automated power production with their Kite Power Generator. This took place on the Maasvlakte2 area in the Port of Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

This demonstration was the goal of the current development track: realisation of fully automated energy generation with both kite and generator running on autopilot. Future development will focus on automated launch and landing, on board power for the steering robot and several performance improvements. Achieving automated flight is also an important step towards commersialisation of the technology.

The first demo day was a business day with media and representatives of interested companies present. On the second demo day the site was opened up to the general public. Over 100 informed themselves about the technolgy.

This development was sponsored by the Rotterdam Climate Initiative.
