New High-Altitude Wind Power Energy Technologies Show Great Promise
These new wind power generator technologies can generate power cheaper and far, far cleaner than coal, oil, or nuclear power plants. The technology exists, we simply need to deploy it.
- Kitegen - An entirely new concept of power plant, suitable to almost any territory, for the production from renewable source of electrical energy cheaper than from fossil fuels (petroleum, coal, gas). The energy source, currently untapped and available anywhere, is the powerful altitude wind of the troposphere, channelled through arrays of large tethered power kites .
- Magenn Power Inc. - Wind Power Anywhere
- Sky WindPower Corporation - High Altitude Wind Power
- Makani Power - Makani Power is seeking to harness high-altitude wind energy to produce energy at an unsubsidized real cost significantly below that of the least expensive coal-fired power plants, the current benchmark of the lowest cost source of power.
