Technologies that use a principle of floating.

Contents

Ballon-Assisted

Floating Solar Chimney

  • Floating Solar Chimney - A variant of the concrete solar tower concept. The floating chimney is a light-weight structure made of a set of lifting balloon rings filled with a lighter than the air gas. Result is projected to be cost-competitive with grid electricity generation.

High Altitude Wind Turbines

  • Directory: High Altitude Wind Power (Separate page) - The energy in winds miles above us is sufficient to provide all the world's energy needs. It can be captured with Flying Electric Generators at two cents per kilowatt hour or less. This is less than the cost of producing electricity using fossil fuels or nuclear fission.

Platforms

  • VersaBuoy Sea Platforms - New system is 1/2 the cost of existing deepwater oil platforms; and is modular, opening many new possibilities, including off-shore wind and wave energy harnessing.
