There, they could deliver electricity and Internet connectivity to people and villages living off-the-grid. Unlike their jet-propelling
doppelgangers, however, these turbines are going to need a bit of help
getting from point A to B.
Think of these floating turbines as the
wind farms of the future and you won't be that far off. Developed by
Altaeros energies, the floating turbines are designed to take advantage
of the powerful prevailing winds that exist 2,000 feet above our heads.
Once they've been inflated and deployed, these floating power plants can
generate twice the output of a ground-based turbine. The tethers that
keep the turbine anchored in place also send that energy ground-ward.
