Sustainable development technologies for improving the energy efficiency of urban infrastructure

Wind energy
Today, approximately 4% of the world's energy comes from wind power. The cost of wind power is falling: Onshore wind prices have fallen by 40% in a decade and offshore wind power by 30% from a decade earlier, making it competitive for the first time. The number of technical solutions in this area is increasing, as well as the number of start-ups in the field of wind energy focused on this rapidly growing market. For example, developing technologies for capturing high-altitude and offshore wind, bladeless and vertical axis turbines, as well as miniturbines that can be installed along roads to generate energy from the movement of passing vehicles.
High altitude wind power
The technology is based on launching into the sky, to a height of over 300 meters, an aircraft: a drone, a turbine, a wing, a kite. The device usually makes cyclic movements and creates tension in the cable with which it is tied to the station on the ground. The tether can transmit power downward or turn turbines at the station itself on the ground.

Technology advantages:
  • 24/7 electricity production, i.e. day, night, cloudy and rainy days;
  • higher power factor than solar photovoltaic (2 times more efficient) and wind turbines (5 times more efficient);
  • requires less investment for installation and maintenance;
  • 10 times less material than conventional wind turbines;
  • mobility and efficiency of installation - it is enough to bring the station to the place of deployment and deploy it within 24 hours, all equipment is placed in one container;
  • entails minimal interference with the environment both in construction and in operation, the aircraft is practically invisible from the ground;
  • the ability to deploy in harsh conditions, almost any terrain, is essentially an analogue of a diesel station.
