Altaeros Energies
' Buoyant Wind Turbine (BAT) Floats in the Sky

The Buoyant Wind Turbine (BAT) is designed to take advantage of high altitude winds, which are often five times greater than those found at typical wind turbine heights. Composed of an inflatable helium shell with stabilizing fins and turbine in the middle, the BAT also has the advantage of being quickly deployable, making it a potential power source for remote areas and emergency zones. The BAT, which would float about 1,000 ft. above the landscape, also addresses the noise and aesthetic concerns commonly lobbed at wind turbines. A strong cable tethers the turbine to the ground and also acts as the conduit through which electricity flows.
