Update on Certification and Regulations of Airborne Wind Energy Systems: The European Case for Rigid Wings

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherOther research output

Abstract

As an increasing number of Airborne Wind Energy Systems (AWES) is reaching early commercialization operational safety and system reliability become important aspects. This presentation will provide an overview of existing and expected rules and standards for ensuring safe operation of rigid wing AWES. The objective is to systematically determine the relevant authorities and their points of view from the top down to the national levels and provide an overview of relevant system standards independent of the specific AWES concept. This overview will be supplemented by the current specific legislation for rigid wing concepts and the relevant upcoming changes of the European airspace law.
