Moving towards renewable sources of energy has become one of the most important energy-related strategies in recent decades. High-altitude wind power (HAWP) has been discovered in 1833 as a source of useful energy. Wind power density (Watts/m2) can significantly increase (~6 times) by going from 80 to 500 m altirude The global capacity of 380 TW (terawau) as well as abundance, strength, and relative persistency of wind in higher altitude are eye-catch ing poinls to consider HAWP as a reliable energy source in the future. A research project called "THOR" has been initiated at Linköping University by a group of master students (soon to graduate) as proof of concept of airborne wind energy (AWES). THOR is about feasibility analysis of different concepts of HAWP and proof of concept of balloon based AWES as one of the appropriate existing concepts. THOR is intended to be a research platform at Linköping University for further development of AWES concepts i n future.
