Title: PROJECT EOLICARE
The searches on new modes of conversion of renewable energies for the electricity production answer the anxieties as for the global warming and for the depletion of fossil ressources.
OrthoKiteBunch is the missing link among the systems of exploitation and conversion of the wind energy.Its characteristics allow OctoKiteBunch to generate a gigawatt with a wind from 12 to 15 m/s,and with a swept area = 2,5 km ²,for a very low occupation on the ground, less than 1 km ².
The implemented method allows to concretize the advantages of the systems with kites,particulary the exploitation of high swept areas from the more powerful and regular winds of high altitude, besides a substantial lightening of the structure.
