The kitegen concept: high altitude wind power based on kites. In this configuration MobileGen, the kite reaches altitudes of the order of 350 m; pulling on a power generator located on the ground. High altitude wind power promises to be a low cost and widely available technology able, in principle, to provide amounts of energy comparable, and even superior, to the present production based on fossil fuels. See here an early test with a first prototype.
