Inspired by the wind

The Netherlands is a great place for wind energy development: Well educated, friendly people and always enough wind!

Aenarete – Wind Drones was founded in 2015. The founder, Dr. Uwe Fechner has many years of experience in industry and academia. He has more than eight years of experience in the operation and simulation of kite power systems.

Whilst employed at Pegasus GmbH, Germany between 2003-2008 he gained a deep knowledge on developing embedded systems for security critical systems. He worked in the department of Mechatronics of Kiel University between 2008-2010. During his research in Delft over the 2010-2016 period he has become an internationally recognized airborne wind energy expert.

He received a PhD in Control of Airborne Wind Energy Systems from Delft University of Technology. Uwe further holds an MSc in Electrical Engineering from Hagen University, Germany. Being the main author of a study on converting the energy supply of the city of Kiel from coal power towards renewable energies shows his passion for achieving impact on society.
