Makani is working to make clean energy accessible for everyone. We’re developing energy kites, a new type of wind turbine that can generate up to 50% more energy than conventional wind turbines while eliminating 90% of the materials used and at lower cost.
Makani was founded in 2006 by Corwin Hardham, Don Montague and Saul Griffith with the goal of developing a low-cost renewable energy solution using kite technology. Initial funding came from Google.org as part of our RE<C program. Makani joined Google[x] in 2013.
