Analysis of Advantages and Disadvantages


New technological innovations possess opportunities, weaknesses, risks and strengths.

SWOT Analyse X Wind eng

An annual review of the Company is one of the fundamental obligations of the management. 
The SWAT-analysis (SWOT = Strengths/Weaknesses/Opportunities/Threats) of X-Wind technology is detailed further below.


Opportunities

  • Production costs comparable with fossil fuel systems
  • Rising prices of fossil fuels
  • Energy source: Wind is free of charge
  • Growing environmental awareness
  • Promotion and marketing independence from fossil fuels
  • General rise of energy costs
  • Globalization and Europeanization
  • Increasing resistance to nuclear energy
  • Rising prices of CO2 certificates increase profitability of NTS systems


Weaknesses

  • Infrastructural development
  • Lengthy approval processes
  • Potential opposition to the minimal visual impact X-Wind plants have on the landscape


Risks

  • Adaptation and modification to comply with legal and regulatory restrictions for development approval
  • Scope of infrastructural development requirements
  • Compliance with international laws and regulations
  • Long-term contracts



Strengths

  • Germany’s recognized position on environmental technology
  • Environmentally friendly systems (wind is free!)
  • No CO2 emissions generated during energy production 
  • Systems built to size according directly to client requirements
  • On-site production of energy
  • Production of environmentally friendly hydrogen from surplus capacities of X-Wind systems
  • Strong intellectual property situation (Patents for over 80% of the world market)
  • Easy deconstructable
  • No stroboscopic effect
  • Bird and bat safe
  • Scalable at site
  • Being competitive with fossil fuels
  • Providing decentralized systems
  • Minimal environmental impact
  • Low use of recoursses
  • Only proven components (standard rail road tracks, bogies from electrical trains, motors from CNC machinery, ropes and kites, standard grid connection parts)
  • Long time scalability
  • Kite size easily changed to better adapt to seasonal wind conditions
  • X-Wind Kites can easily be lowered and brought down in the case of extreme winds
  • Low noise emission
  • Extremely landscape friendly (nearly invisible)
