Windswept & Interesting
We’re making Flying Wind Turbines
Kite Network Turbines are a Scalable Energy Source
Let’s source energy in a cleaner way.
These videos are a good introduction to flying wind turbines, kite power and our networked kite power designs. We network kites together to make flying wind turbines. We use kites instead of a huge tower, concrete base and long blades. This means a flying wind turbine is very lightweight and cheap.
The science of Airborne Wind Energy Systems (AWES) is growing fast. Our Networked kite turbine AWES have huge advantages:- 1 generator on the ground, 2 output is continuous, 3 hugely portable and scalable, 4 safer than single line systems, 5 networks are more efficient per land area…..and more…
Enough chat … time for another Windswept and Interesting playlist
Windswept and Interesting Ltd is probably the smallest company working in Airborne Wind Energy but our ambitions are by far the biggest. We won’t stop until massive flying wind turbine networks make all carbon-emitting energy systems obsolete.
Our designs and results are the MOST Scalable, Efficient & Safe AWES.
We have another challenge, you can help us with. We have a transportable turbine prototype which outputs >1kW, we want to develop a charging system compatible with a family sized e-car. Please help.
