The Energy Kite

If you associate kites with your childhood, it might be time to re-think the concept. A California-based company has developed a self-flying energy kite that may be the answer to tapping into increasing wind power around the world.

Energy kites use a wing tethered to a ground station to efficiently harness energy from the wind. As the kite flies autonomously in loops, rotors on the wing spin as the wind moves through them, generating electricity that is sent down the tether to the grid.
