Windvogel are energy-generating kites that have the potential to create up to 100 kilowatts.

Floating in the air, the smart kites move around and are connected to a ground station by a cable. This push and pull of the cable transforms into electricity, like the dynamo of a bicycle. Whilst flying, Roosegaarde's Windvogel create a visual symphony of dancing lines to celebrate the beauty and poetry of green energy. Windvogel brings green energy, art and landscape design together.
