High Altitude Wind Turbines: To harness winds 1,000 feet up in the sky

Harnessing the power of high altitude winds has been continually explored over the years. Recently, testing of a 35-foot wide prototype of an Airborne Wind Turbine (AWT) has been completed by Altaeros Energies. The AWT was deployed at 350 feet high and produced twice as much power at high altitude than generated at conventional tower height turbines, this was done in an automated cycle. It was transported and deployed from a trailer, which can be very useful in remote areas. It is as clean and portable as it can get.
