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.

    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
