The quest for renewable energy that every modern nation on the planet is trying to harness, for the greater good, the benefit of our wallets and most important of all the benefit of the environment, Malta and Gozo are no different.
While deciding how to capture wind energy, scientists from the
The kite generates energy by pulling on its string on the way up. When it gets to the end of the string, it’s pulled back down and then sent back up for another flight. The amount of energy captured is maximized by flying the kite in figure eights, and bringing it down in a fall like a glider.
Considering how easily the kite takes off in the strong wind – no running, jumping, or Peter-Pan-wishful-thinking involved – I can imagine that a whole lot of power could be generated. Google thinks so too, having invested $10 million in a
The Dutch scientists believe they could generate power comparable to the price of coal, and 50% cheaper than wind turbines. Now, like most renewable energy endeavors, all these researchers need, is the funding to back the project.
