- 1. Airborne Wind Europe
The members of Airborne Wind Europe commit to adhere to the following Key Safety Principles for operation of experimental and developmental Airborne Wind Energy Systems (AWES). The aim is to minimise the risk of a hazardous or catastrophic incident by reducing the probability and the consequence of such an incident. Catastrophic incidents are incidents that could result in one or more fatalities. Hazardous incidents are incidents with one failure away from catastrophic incident or that could result in third party human harm. These principles do not replace any legal or technical safety requirements imposed on AWES developer.
