Airborne wind power beats conventional wind power even by wider margin. San Jose, California (PRWEB) October 08, 2013 A wind power vs. solar power research analysis is published by Airborne Wind Energy Labs. The analysis is based on comparisons of the power intensities of power-harvesting surfaces. Intensity is a physical quantity that measures the power that is transferred per unit of area. The effective intensity of wind power exceeds the effective intensity of solar power between 60...

Wind powered energy storage and synthetic fuel plant designs are unveiled at Airborne Wind Energy Conference, September 10-11. San Jose, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2013 Airborne Wind Energy Labs presents its new research in application of airborne wind energy systems to energy storage and vehicle fuel manufacturing. The main problem inhibiting advance of renewable energy is that electrical energy cannot be stored economically. An airborne wind conversion system, directly charging a thermal...

Wind Energy – Enough To Power The World?
2012-09-11 08:13:01

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Carnegie Institution for Science report that there is enough energy available in winds to meet all of the world's demand, especially through the use of atmospheric turbines. Atmospheric units convert steadier and faster high-altitude winds into energy, creating even more power than ground and ocean based units. The study, published in Nature Climate Change, examines the...
