    DUTCH FLYING WIND DRONE

    Turbine-drone hybrid could catch more wind energy; ‘Flying’ wind turbine may avoid conflicts over large-scale wind farms

    Lorna Siggins, November 9, 2015 (The Irish Times)

    “A Dutch astrophysicist has designed a ‘flying’ wind turbine which may avert environmental conflicts over large-scale wind farms if it proves to be commercially viable…The ‘kite turbine’ uses drone technology and will be able to capture wind energy at higher altitudes with far less impact…[according to its designer, Dr Richard Ruiterkamp…The flying turbine, which resembles a glider on a tether, moves in figures of eight. Its generator or ‘anchor’ on the ground then converts the movement into electricity…By capturing stronger winds at greater heights, it can generate eight times more energy than normal wind turbines, and won’t fly in very bad weather, he pointed out…The average wind turbine can weigh about 120 tonnes, while the glider system weighs about 0.4 of a tonne…Among his sponsors are the World Wide Fund for Nature, [and the European Commission Horizon 2020 and] his company has also used crowdfunding… Flying turbines could be used both on and offshore, and in areas which are not accessible to conventional wind turbines…” click here for more
