Flying down Under
A flying kite is one of the best sights to see in the sky. With technological advancements, researchers have played with the very basic dynamics of the activity. Imagine birds swimming in the ocean and fishes flying in the air. Yes researchers have developed something similar to this. Underwater kites.
A Swedish company has developed underwater kites called “Deep Green.” The best part however remains the electricity generation low velocity tidal currents. The kites are laced with turbines harnessed to the ocean’s base. As the tide flows over the wings, it results in the rotation of turbine. The turbine contains the communication cable as well as the unit’s power.
Developments such as these make us realise that renewable energy can be more than just an alternate energy solution and #EnergySecurity is achievable in the near future.
