Small Grant - Sustainable Energy for Developing Nations
A one-kilowatt Power from Kites demonstrator will be designed, constructed, implemented and evaluated for use in developing nations through the Wind Power from Kites concept. Though wind turbine method generally used is costly, noisy, environmentally damaging in some ways and not viewed as aesthetically pleasing. Kite-generated wind power is a low-cost, environmentally friendly alternative to this. For developing nations, which often live in a state of darkness due to a lack of electricity, such a source of power is feasible and may help alleviate basic inequities within these countries.
