While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    The UK’s Flying Ocean Wind

    Floating Offshore Airborne Wind Energy

    David Ainsworth, 4 April 2016 (WindTech International)

    “…Kite Power Solutions (KPS) is one of a handful of developers of airborne wind energy systems who are pushing forward a technology to challenge the conventional horizontal axis wind turbines in the utility-scale offshore market. Floating offshore [wind systems] could potentially halve offshore wind’s levelised cost of energy (LCOE)…[System yield is expected at a 10 to 15 percent higher capacity factor than existing wind turbines in the same wind environment. The first-of-a-kind cost is around $2.3 million per megawatt. As the technology matures it will reach about $1.8 million per megawatt and an LCOE below $57 per megawatt-hour. In the next two years, KPS will build a 500 kilowatt pre-commercial demonstrator, and following that it will build a 3 megawatt commercial demonstrator, which will be operational in about 2020]…” click here for more
