A floating wind turbine concept designed by Altaeros Energies is actually a hybrid of traditional windmill and a blimp. This clean energy alternative for remote villages and military sites will utilize strong high-altitude winds. The Wind Turbine has an inflatable, helium-filled shell, that lifts it off the ground to high altitudes, where winds are much stronger than at ground level. The airborne turbines are held steady by strong tethers, which send electricity generated by the turbine back down to the ground. Ben Glass, the inventor of the turbine, claims, that winds are not only more than five times stronger at higher altitudes, they’re also more consistent. Among the other benefits of the floating wind turbine are the following: it produces very little noise, and requires little maintenance that can be done at the ground level.
