Wind energy is something that poses a keen alternative when it comes to the search for reliable energy sources and it looks like Kitegen is taking wind power up a notch with the Magenn Air Rotor System. The new technology is far more advanced compared to the traditional soliciting wind energy contraptions we have seen today, generating energy through guiding tethered kites over a predefined flight path in order to rotate a ground based turbine.
Another nice feature that this new breakthrough carries is that it makes use of less space when you think about the usual wind turbines that is normally associated with the wind-powered devices we hear of. While a 1000 MW wind turbine farms takes up an area of 250 to 300 kilometers squared, KiteGen says its approach will take up as little as 5 to 6 kilometers squared for the same output.
It is estimated that a wind power plant of this type can produce around 500 GWh yearly.
