Kite assist research

I’m struggling to re-find a presentation from one of the AWEC conferences.
I think the presenter was Irish. The presentation was something like entraining wind with kites to improve inflow to wind turbines.
The presentation was on a study into the enhanced induction of wind energy downward by kites in front of normal wind turbines to replenish or enhance flow.
Can anyone remember where to find this or who presented this…?

A random search gave me this probably unrelated stuff: From the last slide:

I don’t remember the presentation, but the AWE-Map has the method listed under Energy transfer>Gas>Guided flow and a link to the relevant patent:

Guided wind kite for increased wind turbine power output
