Solar Heat Pump Electrical Generation System
airborne wind turbine active “Lightweight kite systems will extract wind power at a lower cost of energy. Tensile kites reach hundreds of times higher. The wind energy available is hundreds of times larger than the total human energy demand. Coordinated & fast moving kites can extract more energy per volume of air. Windswept and Interesting develops systems to gang kites together on nets.”

I’ve got an open energy project. It’s an airborne wind turbine. (spinning kite electricity generator ~200W output)
How do I add it to the list please? it’s available at http://www.instructables.com/id/Enjoy-a-nice-cup-of-kite-powered-tea/
or my site windswept-and-interesting.co.uk
