Altaeros Energies has introduced the BAT (Buoyant Airborne Turbine) in partnership with the Alaska Energy Authority. The BAT is an airborne turbine that is claimed to produce at least twice the energy from the height of 1,000 feet than regular wind turbines. Additionally, the wind turbine is portable and can be moved around to where it is needed most (i.e. rural areas, disaster zones, etc.). Check out the video below.
This is a gigantic step for sustainable energy, and its portability can be an essential asset in disaster clean-ups as well. All around, it seems as if this Airborne Turbine is the future of sustainable energy, and possibly energy as a whole. What alternative energy sources do you think are changing the future of sustainable energy?
Pay it Forward!
