Research is afoot to explore the energy generating potential of Kites. Kites are particularly useful at greater heights of the troposphere where wind is constant and it is difficult to construct tall towers due to weight of these towers. The technology works like this – two hi-tech cables link the kite to a generator placed on the ground where electrical power is generated based on the movement of the kite in space. Italian researchers have come up with Kite Wind Generator which is expected to reduce production costs of electricity significantly. Thus wind energy is used to generate electricity with minimum investment in terms of generators, cost and land occupation.
