SwissKitePower Project Switzerland
The SwissKitePower project is a multidisciplinary research and development effort aimed at creating a totally new device which can harness wind energy at high altitudes. The winds at altitude are stronger and more consistent than those at the ground and represent an enormous potential source of renewable energy.

Exotic new sources of free electricity: $50 billion market
High Power Energy Harvesting (HPEH) is a term beginning to be used for creation of electricity where it is needed using ambient "free" energy. That zero-pollution, high-energy conversion typically captures light (photovoltaics), heat difference (thermoelectrics and heat pumps) and movement (electrodynamics).

Four marvels promised by high power energy harvesting
Free fuel for vehicles without them stopping. Replacement of millions of diesel electricity generators with something using free energy and totally clean. Buildings disconnecting from the grid in order to reduce costs and power cuts. 1.1 billion people without electricity will get it for little or no cost. Unbelievable? They are now the focus of serious development and demonstrations and the common factor is "high power energy harvesting (HPEH)".

Airborne Wind Energy Conference Netherlands 15-16 June Part One
This is the leading event on this subject: it moves around the world. AWE is the generation of electricity by flying devices in the wind, whether tethered or untethered. Almost all such projects involve tethered devices, over 30 being kites. Some are tethered aircraft that can take off and land themselves
