Setting up/building Makani Power’s Airborne Wind Turbine, which is a “tethered wing that generates power by flying in large circles where the wind is stronger and more consistent. It eliminates 90% of the material used in conventional wind turbines, and can access winds both at higher altitudes and above deep waters offshore — resources that are currently untapped. Our goal is the utility-scale deployment of airborne turbines in offshore wind farms.”
Shot for Scientific American.

so excited for this.
