    Kite Wind Power Rising

    Let’s go fly a kite: new technology to capture wind energy

    Chris Fitch, 25 October 2016 (Geographical)

    “…[T]here are a great number of other potential ways to harness the enormous power of the wind [besides a field of wind turbines], with as much as 95 terawatts (TW) remaining to be developed onshore, and offshore having ‘an even larger resource potential’…[One involves] the kite…[T]he idea of using kites to generate renewable energy from the wind is taking off, albeit slowly, with the recent granting of consent for a [Kite Power Solutions (KPS)] kite power technology test and development site in [Scotland. The KPS low-cost solution to harness energy from the wind using kites would fly] twin kites, attached to a generator, in strong winds as high as 450m above the ground. Specially designed to fly in a circular looping path, the kites can reach over 100mph in 20mph winds, generating strong aerodynamic lifting forces. At full-scale, the 40m kites have a two to three megawatt capacity, about the same as a 100m-tall conventional turbine…” click here for more
