New Designed Wind Turbine Goes Up Where The Wind Is.

This new wind turbine concept really makes sense to me and it seems less invasive.  Massachusetts-based Altaeros Energies has teamed up with the Alaska Energy Authority to power homes across the northwest state using its Buoyant Airborne Turbine (BAT).

The newly designed BAT is a helium filled blimp of sorts that sits approximately 1000 feet in the air where winds are between 5 to 8 times stronger than those found near the ground and it blows more constantly.  Creators say it is capable of reducing energy costs up to 65% and it also doubles as a cell mast tower.

The exceptionally strong chains that keep the Bat securely help to the ground also doubles as its power transfer system

Altaeros Energies designed the BAT to offer ‘consistent, low-cost energy for the remote power market, including remote and island communities; oil and gas, mining, agriculture, and telecommunication firms; disaster relief organizations; and military bases.’
