The World's First Airborne Wind Turbine Brings Power To Remote Areas
The Alaska project will deploy the BAT (Buoyant Airborne Turbine) at a height of 1,000 feet above ground, a height that will break the world record for the highest wind turbine in the world.
Altaeros has designed the BAT to generate consistent, low cost energy for the remote power and microgrid market, including remote and island communities; oil & gas, mining, agriculture, and telecommunication firms; disaster relief organizations; and military bases.
How would this technology change military logistics and communications?
I'd probably need 2 of these to power a BN TOC. That's another 5 ton with trailer burning diesel, and attracting attention. I wouldn't be able to get rid of my diesel and gas generators because wind power is inconsistent, and I'm not waiting for the balloon to inflate before we start operating.
