Altaeros Energies was recently featured as one of the top 10 inventions on CNN. Founded in 2010, Altaeros is developing a breakthrough airborne wind turbine to produce abundant, low cost, renewable energy. Altaeros uses safe and reliable aerospace technology to lift wind turbines to operate at higher heights where winds are much stronger and more consistent than on the ground. Altaeros turbines are designed for easy mobility and rapid deployment at remote, military, and offshore sites.
Altaeros was an alumnus of Larta's US Department of Agriculture- Commercialization Assistance Training Program (2012-13) as well as the National Science Foundation- Commercialization Assistance Training Program (2013) program.
