Airborne generators could lower offshore wind costs on the Offshore Wind Journal’s website reference Mike Blanch‘s presentation at the Offshore Wind Journal Conference last year. In that presentation, Mike told delegates that he believed airborne offshore wind energy systems were a potentially disruptive technology that could have a major role as the offshore wind energy industry continues to evolve. Citing a number of potential technologies that could play a role in the long term, Mike highlighted work under way at Kite Power Systems in the UK. You can see a video in which he discussed kites and other technology here.
