Daidalos Capital Managing Partner Udo Zillmann has been elected as Head of the Airborne Wind Energy Industry Network HWN500.
Daidalos Capital founder and managing partner Udo Zillmann has become head of HWN500, the network of the European Airborne Wind Energy industry. Over 20 Airborne Wind Energy companies, suppliers and research organizations have joined together to form HWN500, an industry body that informs about Airborne Wind Energy, promotes the technology and represents the industry towards political authorities, regulators and the public.
HWN500 seeks to ensure that the large potential of Airborne Wind Energy for providing clean, reliable and affordable energy is taken into account by lawmakers when taking decisions for renewable energy deployment, research funding and regulation. Currently HWN500 is amongst others coordinating the development of joint technical standards for the Airborne Wind Energy industry required by permitting and certification bodies, insurers as well as purchasers of Airborne Wind Energy systems.
Udo Zillmann states: “I am very grateful for the trust placed in me by the Airborne Wind Energy industry with my election to head HWN500. I will work to use my contacts and the knowledge built up over years as an investor in Airborne Wind Energy to help the whole Airborne Wind Energy industry at this very important stage of its development, when Airborne Wind Energy is quickly turning from a theoretical technical concept into a veritable industry and an available solution that can power the world.”
