World AWE continental, regional, national, and scale
representatives and

AWECS at any scale (international or FreeFlight, national, utility, commercial, residential, nomadic, sport, toy, miniature, micro) may have an AWE rep; tell us your interest.  Kite energy labs, KiteLab, kite-energy projects, kite-energy installations, area regulations, tether visibility regulations, siting challenges, patents, applications, products, wind resources, efficiency milestones, successes, challenges, accidents, changes, etc. will be reported for publication by active volunteer representatives.

As we and AWE mature, election and performance may lead to changes and team groupings to respect regional needs, operation areas, ethnic needs, language needs, scale, markets, and special wind-resource needs. In particular, as AWECS (airborne wind energy conversion system) advances, rep teams for regions or nations may be made up up of reporting specialists where focus is on a particular AWECS scale: utility, commercial, residential, nomadic, sport, toy, miniature, or micro.  For example, do you want to volunteer for representing sport-scale AWE in New Zealand?  For residential-scale AWECS in Mexico?  Let us know about your choice.

China, Japan, India, Korea, and Russia may blossom with airborne wind energy innovation and installation.   Access to the intellectual property evolution is challenging for those not having mastery over the these languages.       Help is invited for  awareness for this sector of energy kite systems.
